Description

Es así que podemos centralizar como vectores de orientación en la planificación de los
programas preventivos

Esencialmente en tres:

1. La necesidad de impulsar políticas de prevención integrales, que incorporen
actuaciones considerando las políticas en reducción de la oferta como de la demanda de drogas y que incidan en forma coordinada sobre diferentes sectores
de la población.

2. La educación como herramienta de la acción preventiva. El uso de drogas
constituye un fenómeno con un marcado carácter social, que no puede
desvincularse de otros fenómenos y dimensiones sociales y que esta
íntimamente ligado a valores dominantes, a las formas de organización social,
etc.}

3. El necesario rigor técnico y científico que debe tener cualquier actuación
preventiva.


Thus we can centralize orientation towards three main strategies when planning
preventive programs

1. The need to promote comprehensive prevention policies that incorporate
action policies considering reducing supply and demand of drugs and that have effect on different sectors in a coordinated manner

2. Education as a tool of preventive action. Drug use is a phenomenon with a strong social motivator, which can not be seen isloated from other phenomena and social dimensions and that it is closely linked to dominant values​​, to forms of social organization,
etc.}

3. The necessary technical and scientific rigor must be undertaken for any prevention mechanism.
