This webpage provides links to technical packages to help States and communities take advantage of the best evidence to prevent violence. It is explained a technical package is a collection of strategies that represent the best available evidence to prevent or reduce public health problems like violence and are designed to help improve the health and well-being of communities. It notes a technical package has three parts: the strategy lays out the direction or actions to achieve the goal of preventing violence, the approach includes the specific ways to advance the strategy, and the evidence for each of the approaches in preventing violence or its associated risk factors is included as the third component. Links are provided to technical packages that address: preventing intimate partner violence across the lifespan; preventing suicide; preventing youth violence and associated behaviors; preventing sexual violence; preventing child abuse and neglect; and preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences. Some Technical Packages are also provided in Spanish. (Author abstract modified)
