Strategic Prevention Framework

The Strategic Prevention Framework: Prevention and Health Promotion Made Simple

Caring citizens want to make their community a better place. It can be overwhelming to think about how to do it and it can seem much too hard. BUT, there are ways to make changes in our community that are real, helpful, and needed. Instead of trying to take it all on at once, the Strategic Prevention Framework is a guide to break the goal of change down into smaller and much more possible steps.

Using the Framework can help local people learn how to work better, not harder. People may have a lot of their own ideas about how to make the changes they want to see, and sometimes those ideas work. Sometimes the time and money spent might be better used in other ways. Resources are limited and it is important to find the best ideas that will help the most people, as different as we all are.
