The Prevention Standards Partnership is a multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral collaboration of institutions across Europe, led by Liverpool John Moores University, UK.
Phase II of the European Drug Prevention Quality Standards (EDPQS or ‘Prevention Standards’ for short) project received financial support from the Drug Prevention and Information Programme (DPIP) of the European Union. Phase I of the EDPQS project was co-funded by the European Union under the Programme of Community Action in the field of Public Health (2003-2008). Publication of the Standards as a Manual and as a ‘quick guide’ was funded by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA).
The European Drug Prevention Quality Standards were produced between 2008 and 2010 by the Prevention Standards Partnership (led by Liverpool John Moores University) and published in 2011 as a Manual by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA). The EMCDDA has an advisory capacity within the Prevention Standards Partnership.
