Every day, an estimated 130 Americans die from an opioid overdose – a grim statistic that has devastated families and communities across the nation. Due to its complex and urgent nature, reversing the opioid crisis will require a multi-sectoral and multi-pronged response; no organization, government agency, or sector can solve this crisis on its own. Within the past year alone, numerous initiatives, reports, guidelines, and recommendations have been developed to address the epidemic across the public and private sectors. With so much activity underway, strong mechanisms to support better coordination, information-sharing, and evidence-based practice are needed.

To improve coordination and accelerate the pace of change, the National Academy of Medicine has partnered with the Aspen Institute and more than 55 other organizations to form an Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic. This one-of-a-kind public-private partnership comprises government, communities, health systems, provider groups, payers, industry, nonprofits, academia, and more – all committed to sharing knowledge, aligning ongoing initiatives, and advancing collective, multisector solutions.  Learn more>>
