Abstract

Prevention programs frequently lack clear direction, measurable objectives, and a direct relationship to a definition of what is to be prevented. This paper describes a conceptual model of prevention which is drawn largely from the fields of health education and public health. The model posits that prevention efforts should be based on a clear understanding of the epidemiology of the problem and clearly described behavioral objectives, and should include specific program components to predispose, enable, and reinforce the desired prevention outcome. A description of how this model was useful in the development of a state prevention agency is presented.
