Prevention Agenda Report

May 3, 2022

Partnership to End Addiction has developed a report entitled “Prevention Agenda” fundamentally rethinking our approach to prevention. We must promote child, family, and community health; look beyond the traditional targets of substance use prevention; collaborate with and learn from others in the child health and development fields; and break down silos between related but disparate substance use prevention and child health promotion efforts. To achieve healthy development or a broader population of children, prevention must begin earlier, be better integrated and coordinated across domains of influence in a child’s life, and be expanded to include initiatives that promote health and resilience rather than merely avert negative outcomes like substance use.
