NACCHO Supports a Number of White House Public Health Approaches to Stem the Opioid Crisis
Washington, DC, March 19, 2018 — The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), representing nearly 3,000 local health departments, commends
the inclusion of public health approaches as part of the White House’s Initiative to Stop Opioid Abuse. The initiative includes support of expanding access to evidence-based
treatment, including Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), as well as removing barriers to Medicaid reimbursement for treatment. The plan also seeks to increase the availability of
opioid overdose reversing drugs, including Naloxone, to first responders.
