Resource Properties

Abstract:

This 52-page field guide educates service providers on the use of rapid assessment of alcohol and other substance use among conflict-affected and displaced populations. Based on a collaborative project between the United Nations High Commission on Refugees Public Health and HIV Section and the WHO Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, it takes a public health approach and prioritizes harm and risk reduction related to alcohol and other substance use, including the reduction of HIV transmission risks, to individuals, families and communities. Background, methods, and a framework for planning and conducting the rapid assessment are provided, along with action planning in response and evaluation.
