International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is the world’s largest annual campaign to end overdose. Held on August 31 each year, IOAD aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose. Time to Remember. Time to Act.
