Opioids: The Crisis Upon Us
We are in the midst of an opioid crisis.
After years of funding cuts and reduced capacity, what is governmental public health expected to do? Pretty much everything. Unfortunately, our nation’s public health system is simply overwhelmed. While Congress, Governor’s, state legislatures, and city, county, and town councils are now throwing money at the problem, an overwhelmed system cannot effectively respond. What is needed is for organizations with capacity and expertise to partner with our governmental public health agencies.
The Public Health Foundation (PHF) is prepared to act now and into the future.
The right approach for your community is just a phone call away. Contact Ron Bialek at (202)218-4420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
