Webinar: amfAR Opioid & Health Indicators

July 13, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

amfAR recently released its Opioid & Health Indicators database, a free web platform designed to support communities, lawmakers, and advocates in making informed decisions about the opioid epidemic and its impact on HIV and hepatitis C. The site is a window into the opioid epidemic unfolding in every American’s backyard—it provides local to national statistics using reliable data sources on new HIV and hepatitis C infections, opioid use and overdose death rates, and the availability of services like drug treatment programs and syringe exchange services. In addition, users can examine data at the state or the county levels to see the differential impact of the opioid epidemic by state or within states.

Using real-world case studies, this webinar will guide users through the functionality of the site and will describe how policymakers, health departments, and advocates can use these data in quantifying public health needs, tracking federal funding, and developing policy and programmatic responses specific to their communities.

REGISTER.
