In CADAP 7 efforts will be made to further promote and scale-up prevention programmes.
In the framework of CADAP 6, drug prevention programmes have been introduced in the national programmes of KG, KZ, TJ and UZ. Prevention interventions were implemented in more than 100 schools in KG, KZ, TJ and UZ with the participation of instructors and teachers.
As a result, about 28.800 parents improved their parental skills to prevent their children from using drugs and other risky behavior.
Given its positive impact, the institutionalization of prevention programmes has been initiated in KG, KZ and TJ. Also, in the framework of CADAP 6 a pilot project addressed to youth at risk aged 14-25 years who initiated using psychoactive substances was implemented.
This programme was effectively developed in chosen educational or health care institutions in KG, KZ and TM. As a result, more than 250 youths from risky groups in 4 countries took part in the programme (KG, KZ, TJ and TM).
Overall, the programme has proven to be an important step to intensify the work with youth at risk and as a useful tool to fill in the gap between universal prevention and treatment.
Working Groups consisted of health workers, activists of NGOs, psychologists, educational sector like teachers, national authorities, local educational authorities and other professionals dealing with prevention were set up in each country. Guidelines on drug abuse prevention were also developed and delivered to national authorities in every country.
In this new phase of CADAP, a country-by-country approach in the field of prevention would most probably be based on the following:
Is the source as well as target country for economic migration. Kazakhs migrate to Russia, but Tajik or Kyrgyz come to Kazakhstan.
The guidelines for selective prevention program (PRO 1) will be addressed to both immigrants and families (especially children) of emigrants. The core curriculum on drug prevention (PRO 3) will be developed and tested in collaboration with the Republican Scientific-Practical Centre of Mental Health in Almaty. Kyrgyzstan is the most open country in the region. Drug use prevention addressed to youth is the part of healthy life style promotion. This tradition should be taken into account while core curriculum on drug prevention (PRO 3) will be developed.
The main BC partner for this task will be Republican Center of Health Promotion. The certification of trainings provided by this institution according to developed and tested core curriculum will be under consideration.
Is the source country for economic migration, mostly to Russia, but also to Kazakhstan. The guidelines for selective prevention program (PRO 1) will be addressed to families (especially children) of migrants staying home.

Mahalla fulfilling local self-government functions connecting the private sphere with the public sphere is the unique traditional structure controlling social life of neighborhoods.
Mahalla Committees are responsible for social welfare as well as provide psychological support for inhabitants if needed.
On the basis of mahallas structure PRO 1 will be developed by working group. The core curriculum on drug prevention (PRO 3) will be developed and tested in collaboration with National Information-analytical Centre on Drug Control under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
