Chair of WDP Yasmin Batliwala Comments in the Metro

Our Chair, Yasmin Batliwala, comments in the Metro re the US opioid crisis. 

"Shadowing the escalation of the US opioid crisis, which has now been classified as a public health emergency, the UK is witnessing a similar epidemic of substance misuse. For example, carfentanil and fentanyl - drugs 100 times stronger then heroin - have wrought havoc on the streets of America and are currently being blamed for a swelling spate of deaths in the UK."
