There is a new overdose awareness and naloxone poster campaign launching this week in the UK that features the faces of real community naloxone carriers.
For obvious reasons we’d love to see some photographs of these billboards in the wild so we’re hoping that some of you can post photos to instagram. We’ll be keeping an eye of the #naloxone and #naloxoneposter tags, so if you post something expect our editor to reach out to you.
Almost two-thirds of ambulance crews – who have been using Naloxone for many years – are now also able to distribute it to people who might need it, with the remainder due to be trained by the end of this year. Police Scotland has also run a pilot project for its officers to carry Naloxone while on patrol.
