PREVENTION

EKTEPN systematically collects detailed data on prevention interventions implemented in Greece, in order to draw a comparable and comprehensive picture of the number, the scope and other quantified data about prevention interventions and to disseminate reliable and valid information about the prevention interventions implemented in Greece at the national and European level.

Data are collected and analysed in order to be presented and made available at both national (e.g. EKTEPN's Annual Reports published in Greek) and at European level (e.g. National Report submitted to the EMCDDA and published in English). Moreover, the work of the Prevention Centres run by ΟΚΑΝΑ / local authorities and other prevention agencies is consistently promoted by EKTEPN in its relevant databases and publications.

In addition to routinely reporting on prevention interventions implemented in Greece on a yearly basis at both national and European level, EKTEPN also promotes the visibility of prevention interventions –most notably examples of best practice– and publishes them on information exchange systems.

Moreover, EKTEPN places special emphasis on the development of prevention-related evaluation and research, through participation in experts groups, implementation of relevant projects and transfer of knowhow at the national level.
