The Six Elements of Effective Coalitions

Publication Date: Nov 21, 2019

The Six Elements of Effective Coalitions, developed by the national Prevention Technology Transfer Center network, is the first installment in a series, Key Elements of Effective Coalitions.

The goal of this series is to provide information on key elements that research suggests are critical for coalitions to operate effectively and increase their impact on substance misuse and its consequences for individuals and communities.

This resource is not meant to be exhaustive, but instead serve as a starting place for prevention practitioners and community coalition members who are in the building and maintenance phase of a healthy coalition. Based on a large and growing body of rigorous research, there are six elements that are characteristic of effective coalitions.


Future installments in this series will provide tools to help practitioners assess, monitor, and implement these elements to enhance their coalition work.
