Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act (DWDA), enacted in 1997, allows doctors to supply lethal drugs to terminally ill and mentally capable patients who request them for purposes of suicide. The Oregon Public Health Division is required by the DWDA to collect information on the operation of the Act and to issue annual reports. The report on Calendar Year 1999 may be accessed here.

The first annual report documenting the practice of physician-assisted suicide in Oregon can be accessed below:
