National Drug-Related Deaths Index (NDRDI)

The NDRDI is a census of drug-related deaths (such as those due to accidental or intentional overdose) and deaths among drug users (such as those due to hepatitis C and HIV) in Ireland. It also records alcohol-related deaths.

Data is collected from a number of sources, including:
• The Coroner Service;
• The General Mortality Register;
The Central Treatment List;
HIPE

The information is used to develop health and social service responses aimed at reducing the number of deaths.
