Prevention and Evaluation Resources Kit (PERK)


Please note: a similar more recent and broader prevention resource is available here: 
European drug prevention quality standards

This manual compiles basic but evidence-based prevention principles, planning rules and evaluation tips. Additionally, it provides related documentation or references for download; it is hoped that this additional material will be particularly useful for readers who have difficulty accessing the scientific prevention literature. To illustrate the theoretical discussion, an intervention example, partly based on a real-life situation, gives a practical perspective.

Note: Hungarian was translated and produced by the Hungarian Focal Point
