Opportunities to Improve Opioid Use Disorder and Infectious Disease Services:
Integrating Responses to a Dual Epidemic
 
This new report, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, examines current efforts to integrate care and describes barriers, such as inadequate workforce and training; lack of data integration and sharing; and stigma among people who use drugs and have also been diagnosed with an infectious disease. The conclusions and recommendations of this report will help to promote patient-centered, integrated programs to address this dual epidemic. .
 
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 23, 2020 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
