The purpose of the program, called Overdose Data to Action (OD2A), is to collect comprehensive and timely data on nonfatal and fatal overdoses as a means to inform OD prevention and response efforts nationwide. MSPHI is proud to bring the benefits of this program to the state of Mississippi.
The opioid epidemic in particular has had a profound effect on the citizens of Mississippi in relation to overdose deaths, economic impact, and behavioral health.
