Communities Leading Healthy Change
We all want to be healthy, but that can be hard if the right supports are not in place. For example, it can be difficult to eat healthy when it is too expensive to buy fresh and local fruits and vegetables. They may not be sold in one’s neighborhood, or they are not always available in our schools. It can be difficult to be physically active when places like streets, sidewalks and parks are not easy, safe, and enjoyable to use. And it can be difficult to manage a chronic disease, like diabetes, when you are not connected to a system that helps you to do so.
The Bernalillo County Opioid Accountability Initiative is a multi-sectoral collective impact strategy to align the activities of governmental, non-profit, business and community leaders to strengthen the prevention, treatment, harm reduction (through naloxone access) and law enforcement/criminal justice system responses to the epidemic of opioid overdose deaths in Bernalillo County.
