Supervised injection services save lives: Sign action alert

According to figures from the provincial coroner’s office, there were more than 700 opioid-related deaths in 2015. That works out to one death every 13 hours.

Public health evidence tells us many of these deaths can be prevented with access to comprehensive harm reduction services, including supervised injection services (SIS).

Sign and share our action alert

That is why RNAO is urging all its members to sign our action alert to Premier Kathleen Wynne asking her to immediately fund SIS in Ottawa and Toronto.
