With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO is pleased to offer a funding opportunity for health departments or government, nonprofit, academic, or other organizations to develop key messages on harm reduction that can be delivered through academic detailing. Through this project, selected sites will identify a population that would benefit from detailing on harm reduction and overdose prevention and response and has meaningful engagement with the priority population of people who use drugs. Sites will then develop specific key messages for this population and pilot the key messages. The population should be a population of the sites’ choosing and is not limited to those within the medical profession; sites can choose to provide academic detailing on any population of their choosing (emergency room physicians, social workers, faith leaders, EMS, etc.).
Through this funding opportunity, NACCHO and CDC will award up to eight (8) applicants, for up to $60,000 per site.
