Drug use prevention programmes are effective when they respond to the needs of a community, involve all the relevant sectors and are based on scientific evidence. Below are resources for:UNODC/WHO International Standards on Drug Use Prevention - Second updated edition. The Standards summarize the currently available scientific evidence, describing interventions and policies that have been found to result in positive prevention outcomes and their characteristics. Concurrently, the document identifies the major components and features of an effective national drug prevention system. It is our hope that the Standards will assist policy makers worldwide to develop programmes, policies and systems that are a truly effective investment in the future of children, youth, families and communities.
Health workers can have a positive and crucial influence on children and youth and their risk behaviour, helping them grow happy and resilient.
Parents have the most influence in helping their children grow happy and learn to cope well in difficult life situations.
