Adapt Pharma Making Naloxone Available to All U.S. High Schools

The announcement, made at the CHMI Fifth Annual Health Matters Activation Summit, builds upon a 2015 announcement with Adapt Pharma to provide school districts, college campuses, public safety agencies, and community-based organizations access to discounted pricing to Naloxone.

Adapt Pharma, Limited on Jan. 25 announced it is collaborating with the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, to offer a free carton of NARCAN® (naloxone hydrochloride) Nasal Spray to all high schools in the United States through the states' departments of education. The announcement, made at the CHMI Fifth Annual Health Matters Activation Summit, builds upon a 2015 announcement with Adapt Pharma to provide school districts, college campuses, public safety agencies, and community-based organizations access to discounted pricing to Naloxone, according to the foundation's announcement.

Sponsored by Tenet Healthcare Corporation, the meeting was a high-level dialogue about what's working and what more can be done to improve the health and well-being of U.S. communities. DUring it, Harvard Health Publications announced a partnership with CHMI to createan educational platform that builds the capacity of employers and employees to improve workplaces' health and wellness. The partnership aims to educate employees about behavioral health risk factors, prevention, impacts on physical health, and evidence-based treatment options and outcomes.

Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala headed plenary discussions on addressing health disparities through technology and innovation, as well as including girls and women in sports to improve their health. "If we have community-based solutions that involve all stakeholders, we can make a lot of difference," the former president said. "We can't forget that the shape these challenges take are different from community to community. That is what makes Health Matters' work to make communities the centers of health innovation so important."
