Expert meeting on drug-related deaths (DRD) 2019

On 21-22 October 2019, the EMCDDA brings together more than fifty European and international experts for a meeting on the key indicator Drug-related deaths. The meeting provides a space for sharing and discussing new data, studies and experiences at regional, national and European level.

It also aims to facilitate technical work around the collection and analysis of the different components of this indicator: overdose and toxicological information from special mortality registers; data from the general mortality registers; mortality cohort studies; as well as developments in responses.

During the specific parallel session for IPA beneficiaries, participants will have the opportunity to share their success stories and challenges on the use of EMCDDA methodology when reporting data.
