Haas, Sabine and Guzei, Klarissa and Türscherl, Elisabeth (1998) European drug prevention week 1998: activities and experiences in Austria. Vienna: Austrian Health Institute .

In 1998 the European Commission organised the third European Drug Prevention Week (EDPW), following similar events in 1992 and 1994. The EDPW of 1998 was based on the motto "Multidisciplinarity and prevention of drug addiction: awareness-raising of the civil society and partnerships". In Austria, EDPW was to develop the general framework of prevention policy that had been developed over the previous years through informing the general public about drug misuse in a number of settings (schools, communities) to a wide range of target audiences (children, youths, parents, teachers, experts etc.) through a number of methods (performing arts, conferences, workshops). This report outlines the rationale for EDPW in Austria and analyses the different methods used.
