Our country is in the grip of an epidemic. Every day in America we lose more than 100 men and women to opioid overdoses â€“ more than 33,000 in 2015 alone.
Like so many people in this country, I too know families who have lost children to opioid overdose. It is gut-wrenching for everyone affected and truly breaks my heart.
And thatâ€™s why the Clinton Foundation is working to fight this epidemic.
Our first priority is to save lives by expanding emergency use of naloxone, a life-saving tool that can reverse an opioid overdose and get the person breathing again in seconds.
At our recent Health Matters Activation Summit, we announced that we are partnering with Adapt Pharma to donate more than 40,000 doses of this life-saving antidote to every college and university in the U.S.
These efforts will save lives.

However, we can't just focus on preventing overdoses â€“ we need to address the root problem. Today, there are more than 2.5 million Americans struggling with addiction to heroin and other opioid drugs. They need help to conquer their addictions and lead healthy, productive lives.
Iâ€™m proud to announce that the Clinton Foundation is joining forces with Harvard Medical School to provide a new free, online course that educates the general public on the signs of addiction, how best to support individuals who suffer from addiction and dependency, and the best evidence-based treatment options for long term recovery.
Since 1999, overdose deaths involving opioids including heroin and prescription painkillers have nearly quadrupled. We know how to keep those people alive â€“ and just as important, we can help them conquer their addictions and turn their lives around.

In this country, in this century, no one should ever die of a drug overdose.
With your help, we can bring people back from the brink of death â€“ and whatâ€™s more, we can help them get their lives back on track and look forward to a happier, healthier tomorrow.
