On 31st of August the main bridges of city Vilnius will be illuminated in purple to honor the memory of those who have passed away due to drug overdoses and to show support for individuals and families affected by overdose. In addition, a special press release will be issued with video message to raise awareness about overdoses from a policy, healthcare and NGOs perspective.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
