Abstract

Rocco Friebel, Laia Maynou, and Katelyn Yoo estimate the impact of social sector spending cuts resulting from austerity measures on opioid-related hospitalisations and mortality in England. They call for more and targeted spending on the social sector, policies that address systematic inequalities, and improved macroeconomic conditions that are critical in curtailing the opioid epidemic.
