    Abstract

    This special section in the Drug and Alcohol Review is devoted to the theme of prevention. It is particularly timely that the Review should focus on prevention in early 2004 following the recent launch of Australia’s National Drug Strategy Prevention Agenda by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. Over recent years, there has been growing attention directed towards prevention in public policy both in Australia and overseas. There is also increased recognition of the capacity of prevention initiatives to offer protection from alcohol and other drug-related harms and to decrease the likelihood of a range of social and health outcomes.
