With funding from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy's Program Evaluation and Research Unit (PERU) has launched a statewide overdose prevention website called OverdoseFreePA.

A pilot application is being developed for OverdoseFreePA that will allow the public to browse close-to-real-time overdose death statistics by categories such as gender, age, race, and type of drug. The pilot will begin by using the overdose death statistics from Allegheny County. Collaborators on the project include the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office, and the Single County Authorities of Allegheny, Butler, Bucks, Blair, Dauphin, Delaware and Westmoreland counties.
