Health education: Drug use prevention

The Global Youth Network links youth groups around the world together in a sustainable network, and assists them in their work to prevent drug use. The Network has published "A Participatory Handbook for Youth Drug Prevention Programmes: A guide for development and improvement" which can be found in the section on Youth and Drugs.  Additional tools can be found in the section on Taking Action.
