Unveiling trends in drug-related deaths

Status: Active

Northern Ireland is experiencing an escalating problem of harm related to substance use, evidenced by rapid increases of deaths attributable to drugs and alcohol in recent years. The research will generate more extensive socio-economic, health and equality group (Section 75) related information to better understand adverse trends in drug and alcohol mortality in Northern Ireland. By addressing some of the gaps in knowledge and providing up-to-date analyses, our project results will guide policymakers and inform public health and health system planning in Northern Ireland.
