'All Scientific Hands On Deck' To End The Opioid Crisis
By Nora Volkow (Director, NIDA) and Francis Collins (Director, NIH) In 2015, 2 million people had a prescription opioid use disorder and 591,000 suffered from a heroin use disorder; prescription drug misuse alone cost the nation $78.5 billion in health care, law enforcement, and lost productivity.

Tobacco is a deadly product that kills more than 7 million people every year, and costs the global economy more than US$ 1.4 trillion annually in healthcare expenditure and lost productivity. Tobacco control will play a major part in meeting the Sustainable Development Goal target of reducing premature deaths from noncommunic...
