A Framework for Action: Responding to the Overdose/Opioid Public Health Emergency for First Nations captures a system-wide
response to slow and stop overdose.
The Framework for Action is focused on the most urgent goal of preventing deaths while also
supporting First Nations broader mental health and wellness goals. Slowing and stopping overdose is a shared responsibility, this
Framework for Action is guided by Reciprocal Accountability and underpinned by our teachings of cultural safety.
Implementation will be supported by continuous efforts to improve real-time data from communities and health data sources.
The four goals are:
1) Prevent people who overdose from dying
2) Keep people safer when using
3) Create an accessible range of treatment options
4) Support people on their healing journey
