- Day 1 will be focused on identifying community-based levers that can contribute to systemic change to prevent and respond to opioid overdose
- Day 2 will move towards tactical local planning, supporting communities to commence the development of local action plans
- Local action plans will form the basis of the application process required for a CAI funding call to be launched in February 2018.
