In this project, we have documented the not-for-profit organizations’ practices and analyzed them through lenses of different issues in public health and public policy. Although these organizations had various histories and domains of activity, they were all are active in programs which could have been viewed as contributing to the promotion of healthy public policies.

We have also developed two documents on the education and distribution of naloxone in which not-for-profit organizations are often involved.
