lonomia. The death toll from Alberta's opioid epidemic is disproportionately cl

The death toll from Alberta's opioid epidemic is disproportionately claiming the lives of First Nations people, concludes a new report from the provincial government. The surveillance study, released Dec 3rd, shows First Nations Albertans are dying from opioid poisoning at a rate three to four times higher than non-First Nations people. First Nations people account for about six per cent of the provincial population but represent 13 per cent of all opioid poisoning deaths between Jan. 1, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2018, says the report from Alberta Health. The report shows 1,957 people died from opioid poisoning in Alberta between Jan. 1, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2018. Of the total, 246 were First Nations people. The proportion of opioid drug poisonings involving fentanyl increased by more than 80 per cent among First Nations people. Southern Alberta, particularly Calgary and Lethbridge, have been hardest hit by addiction and overdose deaths, the report shows. Historical trauma, including the painful legacy of residential schools, has contributed to the epidemic. It's trauma that has been carried over time through government policy. ◇ #humanrights #awareness #awarenessisfreedom #decolonize #firstnations #indigenous #canadian #canada #alberta #calgary #lethbridge #edmonton #vancouver #ontario #wakethefuckup #intergenerationaltrauma #epigenetics #residentialschools #decolonizeyourmind #opioidaddiction #poverty #opioidcrisis #opioidawareness #addictionawareness #canada🍁 #bigpharma #fuckbigpharma

The Mekong River has recently acquired an aquamarine colour that may beguile tourists but also indicates a problem caused by upstream dams, experts in Thailand say. The river usually has a yellowish-brown shade due to the sediment it normally carries downstream. The water levels have also become unusually low, exposing sandbanks that allow the curious to stand in the middle of the river. The experts and people living along the river blame the Xayaburi hydroelectric dam upstream in Laos that began operating in October for contributing to both problems, though rainfall has also been sparse. The dam blocks much sediment from moving further downstream. Less sediment means less nutrition for plants and fish in the river, threatening the ecological balance. With less sediment, the water also has more stream power, a phenomenon known as "hungry water". This will cause much more erosion to the banks, uprooting trees and damaging engineering structures in the river. The dam's developers have denied that they were responsible for low water levels. ♡ #humanrights #awareness #awarenessisfreedom #mekongdelta #mekongriver #environment #water_of_our_world #wayoflife #deforestation #drought #indigenous #poverty #government #democracy #biodiversity #erosion #riverlife #thailandtravel #savetheearth #savetheplanet #wakethefuckup #knowledgeiskey #ecowarrior

#repost @dr_hashhh ・・・ As the Christmas period approaches pls remember those less fortunate! Those who do not have shelter, food or a family. You don’t have to have a fortune to lift their spirits, just a smile, a good morning or even sitting down next to them and listening could change the course of their day!!! #FoodForThought #food #poverty #community #together #smile #family #christmas

We met this man in Central Park in San Salvador. He is 83 years old and works 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are not other options for him to be cared for. However, he said he also enjoys working. As aging occurs it is a very good thing for individuals to still feel capable and independent and so in this way, the need for him to work is, in many ways, a good thing for his health and well-being. * * * * * #aging #agingwell #poverty #elsalvador🇸🇻 #charities #donationsappreciated #people_and_world #people #everypersonmatters

Congratulations, Denzel!⠀ . It's a wrap for our senior primary school students at VOH Zimbabwe. It is also another year where we celebrate over a 96% pass rate at the national exams for these students.⠀ .⠀ One of our resident students, Denzel, is all smiles after receiving very impressive marks in the exams. He worked very hard and is ready for the workload of high school. ⠀ .⠀ Denzel and the other students have shown that when you dedicate yourself to what you want to achieve in life, you will achieve it no matter the circumstances. So we celebrate with Denzel and all of our graduates this week and we wish them the best in the upcoming transition to high school!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vohafrica #educationforall #zimbabwe #philanthropy#africa#africankids#charitywork#socialgood#subsaharanafrica#charities#nonprofitwork#sponsorachild#poverty#cutekidzz#charitable

Our economic justice team was in #trentonnj today supporting a critical bill to end juvenile justice fees in #NewJersey. Legislation like this is necessary and affects thousands of youth and families. Staff attorney Katrina Goodjoint (right) said it best in her testimony: "There is currently a growing movement around the country that recognizes a justice system that is based on one's income does not provide justice at all." 👏🏽 _ Pictured: Jessica Feierman, Senior Managing Director; Katrina Goodjoint, Staff Attorney _ #southjersey #lawyer #advocate #advocacy #tristate #nj #legal #law #criminaljustice #justice #debtfreejustice #juvenilelawcenter #juvenilejustice #decriminalize #poverty #youth #youthjustice #goodnews #positivevibes
