Strategy selection

Choosing strategies to implement should be a data-driven decision-making process based on identified risk and protective factors in the community and a local needs and resource assessment. An intervention or strategy is the best fit if it can show the following:

  • Effectiveness - is the intervention effective?
  • Conceptual fit - will the intervention impact the selected risk factor?
  • Practical fit - is the intervention feasible for the community?
