CANBERRA Cheap Daniel Amartey Jersey , Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- Australians addicted to prescription drugs are increasingly turning to more potent opioids, a study has found.

The report, released by the Penington Institute on Friday, found a significant increase in fatal accidental overdoses because of powerful drugs such as fentanyl, pethidine and tramadol.

From 2011 through 2015, 3 Cheap Christian Fuchs Jersey ,601 Australians died from opioid-related overdoses, twice as many as succumbed to overdoses from 2001 to 2005.

John Ryan, CEO of the Penington Institute, said that more lives would be lost unless the national approach to drug addiction was changed.

""We need better community education for people who are experimenting with drug use before they become addicted,"" Ryan told the Australian media.

Accidental deaths from morphine, codeine and oxycodone accounted for 1 Cheap Ben Chilwell Jersey ,556 opioid-related deaths over the five-year period while fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 100 times more potent than morphine, pethidine and tramadol were responsible for 796 deaths.

Penington Institute data found there had been 19-fold increase fentanyl-related deaths in the state of Queensland alone while Australia-wide the increase was eight-fold.

Chris Hayes, a pain specialist doctor, said that fentanyl was typically prescribed to treat pain in cancer patients. It is typically administered through an arm-patch which slowly releases the pain-relief.

""But in the liberal way of opioid policy in this country there has been seen a widening for chronic non-cancer pain as well,"" Hayes said.

Ryan said people were increasingly turning to the dark web to acquire fentanyl.

He said that government efforts to reduce supply would not solve the wider issue of drug addiction.

""The increasing deaths from overdose for basically all of this 21st century shows that we are failing to address drug problems in our community Cheap Bartosz Kapustka Jersey ,"" he said.

NEW YORK, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Amidst the rapid change and uncertainty of the 21st century Cheap Andy King Jersey , the Asia-Pacific countries should strengthen multilateral cooperation to prevent upheaval or crisis in Asia, according to a report by Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) on Monday.

""The core strategic question for the first half of the 21st century is whether the Asia-Pacific region will be able to maintain another generation of remarkable economic growth and sustain peace in the face of unprecedented geopolitical change,"" said Kevin Rudd, President of ASPI, who is also known as former Prime Minister of Australia.

According to the report named ""Preserving the Long Peace in Asia: The Institutional Building Blocks of Long-Term Regional Security"" , the Asia-Pacific region is now facing an important inflection point.

On one hand Cheap Ahmed Musa Jersey , increasing GDP levels, widespread poverty reduction, and growing trade integration have created optimism for the region' s future and given states every incentive to avoid conflict. On the other hand, the Asia-Pacific region' s security environment has become increasingly complex.

""The Asia-Pacific security environment is grappling with several significant challenges that necessitate the development of a stronger, more effective regional architecture,"" said the report.

These challenges include: rapid political and economic transformations Wholesale Leicester City FC Jerseys , growing strategic competition between major players in the region,fragility caused by ""trust deficit"" among regional states, and widespread militarization and acquisition of new technologies.

To address the challenges listed above, the report outlines five functions regional institutions must be able to play.

First, regional institutions should play a binding role, drawing regional states toward greater convergence around common security interests.

Second Cheap Leicester City FC Jerseys , the architecture should mitigate against historical mistrust and offset the patterns of history by providing opportunities for strategic dialogue as well as practical cooperation.

Third, an effective regional architecture should, over time, facilitate better management of crises and disputes.

Fourth, a regional architecture should also rationalize and align the efforts of individual institutions and mechanisms.

Finally, an effective regional architecture should provide flexibility in setting an appropriate Wholesale Leicester City Jerseys , forward-looking agenda in order to withstand the future pressures arising from shifting regional dynamics and evolving security policy priorities.

Over time such regional institutions can begin to change the way in which states think about, see, and respond to one another, so that we can use effective regional institutions to take the regional temperature down, rather than just simply allowing it to spiral, Rudd said.

Approaching the question of how Asia-Pacific nations could best pursue efforts to build a stronger security architecture Cheap Leicester City Jerseys , the report argues that strengthening the East Asia Summit (EAS) would be one of the most important and practical steps countries could take.

In the near-term, the report suggests member states could retain the relatively informal nature of the EAS but also focus on some basic reforms that would better institutionalize the forum and enhance its ability to set a strategic agenda and be more responsive to emerging events in the wider region.

In the long-term, efforts could be made to re
