In 2018, the National Academy of Medicine launched the Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic, a network of more than 55 organizations committed to overcoming the opioid crisis. The Action Collaborative has three goals:

  1. Identify and raise the visibility of complex challenges, outstanding research gaps and needs of the opioid crisis that require a collective, multi-sectoral response;
  2. Elevate and accelerate evidence-based, multi-sectoral, and interprofessional solutions to improve outcomes for those affected by the opioid crisis; and
  3. Catalyze action on shared priorities and solutions to help overcome the crisis and improve outcomes for all.
