Danish Addicts to Get Overdose Kits

Denmark has some of Europe's highest rates of drug-related deaths


The Danish government has announced a new scheme that will see overdose kits distributed to drug users in the capital. Officials in Copenhagen said on Friday that the government would dedicate some DKK 6 million (EUR 806,000) for the effort, which will see central government work alongside leftist group Enhedslisten to save the lives of the city's opiate addicts.
