As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present new challenges, historic, and systemic oppressors experienced by PWUD have only become more exacerbated. PWUD were already experiencing a lack of resources, lack of funding, and neglect by
the health care system. In the context of a global pandemic, these inequities have driven up risk for PWUD, and it is paramount that we capture this experience to prevent history from repeating itself.

Therefore, the Canadian Association of People who Use Drugs collected data and held focus groups with our members to gain insight into the collateral impacts of COVID-19, as it relates specifically to overdose prevention services.
