The amfAR Opioid & Health Indicators Database in Action
The Opioid & Health Indicators Database is a free resource for policymakers, advocates, journalists, academics, and anyone else interested in learning more about the opioid epidemic and its intersection with HIV, Hepatitis C, and other infectious disease consequences of the rise in injection drug use.
The database has been used by a number of groups, including amfAR staff, to further investigate these epidemics. Below are a few examples of the database in academic pieces and in print and digital media.
