Substance Use X COVID-19 Data Collaborative
This collaborative of social scientists, community researchers, and public health clinicians from around the world will pool data and collect field reports on grassroots innovations and social policies in their countries to assess their impact on access to treatment for opioid use disorder and other health outcomes during the pandemic. The group will recommend policy and practice changes that should be sustained after the pandemic subsides. In particular, the collaborative will be analyzing digitally mediated peer support and mobile medication delivery and social policies such as Housing First, reduced drug-related arrests, and safe drug supply measures.
