Professor Catriona Matheson, Taskforce Chair:

Since its inception, The Taskforce has worked urgently to identify the areas of action that can make a sustainable impact against the challenge of drug related deaths in Scotland and save lives. The Report outlines this important work as the Taskforce moves into its second phase which will focus on providing recommendations to the Scottish Government for the national roll out of effective interventions now identified, and for the further exploration of key issues.
