Steps of the SPF

The Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) uses a five-step process known to reduce risk-taking behaviors and prevent adverse behavioral health outcomes across the lifespan. The idea behind the SPF is to use the findings from public health research along with evidence-informed strategies to build capacity and decrease risk factors within communities.

Throughout all five steps, coalitions must address issues of sustainability and cultural competence. These steps require grantees to systematically:

  1. Assess their prevention needs based on epidemiological data
  2. Build their prevention capacity
  3. Develop a strategic plan
  4. Implement effective community prevention strategies
  5. Evaluate their efforts
