For 3 months, commencing in August – Barwon Health will be displaying a powerful message, reminding the public of the importance of carrying naloxone. Utilising bus advertising, a large advertisement covering the entire rear of a public transport bus will be displayed.

Further, during the week of Overdose Awareness Day, each NSP delivery will receive custom made fortune cookies, containing overdose prevention messages and information on how to access free naloxone, locally.

Both these strategies were designed in light of COVID-19 restrictions which have limited face to face contact with those that access harm reduction services.
