NYS DOC Overdose Prevention Rescue Kit

HRC and the NY Department of Corrections collaborated on a public health communications initiative that encourages newly-released prisoners in the state to use naloxone for first aid.¬†We designed the “Overdose Prevention Rescue Kit” that’s handed to each individual upon release. The signature blue zipper pouches¬†are silkscreened with quick-read naloxone assembly instructions, and the inserted pamphlet provides step-by-step first aid instructions and diagrams. The kit is bilingual, in English and Spanish.
