The data presented in this paper describe what is known about trends in drug-related deaths and deaths among drug users in Ireland between 1990 and 2002. The current and potential sources of data in Ireland on drug-related deaths and deaths among drug users are described.

The analysis presented in this paper is based on data reported to the General Mortality Register (GMR) and on studies that extracted data from the coroners' records, the Central Treatment List, and the AIDS surveillance system, and on an epidemic investigation. This paper will assist policy makers, service planners and public health practitioners to develop appropriate responses to the consequences of problem drug use.
