Opioid Price Watch

Opioid Price Watch Project

Two sets of data are displayed in this map. The first shows the availability, affordability and accessibility of a 30-day treatment of immediate release oral solid morphine. A red dot indicates no availability of immediate release oral solid morphine. The second set of data displays the cost of other opioids and morphine formulations included in this project. You can drag or zoom in the map by using the zooming tool on the left.

The displayed prices are the lowest price of locally available formulations at retail level or hospital pharmacies. The prices displayed are prices of opioids for use outside of the hospital (not for in-patients).
