Equipping States to Respond to the Prescription Drug Overdose (PDO) Epidemic through CDC’s Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP).
States play a central role in responding to the PDO epidemic through their data systems, programs, and policies. CDC supports states’ efforts by providing the science and resources to address the key drivers of the epidemic: high-risk prescribing and high-risk prescription drug use.
CDC’s Core VIPP program builds state health department capacity to address violence and unintentional injuries. Core VIPP activities include identifying public health burden focus areas through surveillance data and identifying and implementing interventions to address problems. The Core VIPP program serves as an effective mechanism to assist states in responding to the PDO epidemic within their borders.
