Database of Evidence Based Programs and Practices for Prevention
This is a searchable web tool developed to make information accessible to Spanish speaking professionals and members of the community who are interested on developing and/or implement effective interventions in Puerto Rico. The database contains interventions or programs in different areas of prevention:
- Child Maltreatment
- Community Violence
- Home Visiting / Parenting
- Substance Abuse
Each program is described with vital information, including a brief description of the program, language, targeted outcomes, quality of research, training availability and contact information. This information helps individuals and organizations determine whether a particular program may meet their needs and to make informed decisions about their investments in prevention programs. The database can be used by individuals, governmental agencies, schools, foundations, and community organizations:
- as a reference source in Spanish,
- to select an intervention,
- to access many links of interest.
Do you know or have a program that has demonstrated positive results? Do you want to include it in the database?
