UNESCO on education & substance use by adolescents

March 28, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Unesco has released booklet 10 in the Good Policy and Practice in Health Education series titled Education Sector Responses to the Use of Alcohol, Tobacco and Drugs.

From page 10 (executive summary): “This booklet provides the context and rationale for improved education sector responses to the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs among children and young people, with a focus on primary and secondary education sectors. It presents evidence-based and promising policies and practice, including practical examples from different regions that have been shown to be effective by scientific research. It also suggests issues for the education sector to consider in sustaining and scaling up effective approaches and programmes to tackle substance use.”
