A holistic, nationwide approach to prevention cannot rely on any single strategy, setting or technique to reach everyone or create long-lasting change.
To make change ‘stick’, our national approach to prevention needs to include a number of different techniques that support the transformation of norms, practices and structures across multiple settings.
Policy makers and funders need to ensure that prevention work spans multiple settings in a coordinated and mutually reinforcing way.
It is important to scan your environment to ensure that your prevention work is not duplicating other work and to seek opportunities to connect your work to larger strategies or efforts.
