Primary Prevention is a key strategy for eliminating inequities in substance misuse prevention. These resources and tools can help to improve the quality of services provided by the substance misuse prevention workforce in order to reduce health disparities and achieve health equity so that all individuals receiving prevention services feel acknowledged and respected.

We all know that to be successful and sustainable, coalitions and prevention providers must be able to plan and implement prevention strategies that are data-driven, evidence-based and promote health equity. Over the course of these two informational sessions (Foundations & Needs Assessment) coalition members, prevention providers and emerging professionals built their capacity to promote health equity in prevention processes and strategies. Two virtual Communities of Practice were offered to session attendees looking for a deeper discussion and planning around the application of health equity.
