In addition, the foundation has worked with more than 20 not-for-profit groups to provide funding against the opioid crisis. "The epidemic of opioid misuse is a complex, multifaceted problem—and one that demands action, attention and a collaborative approach," said Gina Clark, president of the AmerisourceBergen Foundation. "I look forward to the next phase of our foundation's work as we continue to identify partnerships aligned to our mission that will help maximize our impact and drive sustained change." Other steps the foundation has taken include identifying and developing opioid misuse and abuse initiatives that aim to redefine the best practices, further innovative ideas from the nonprofits, and improve the well-being of various communities.
