The overarching purpose of this program is to prevent sexual violence by implementing primary prevention strategies.

These principles include the following: addressing modifiable risk and protective factors for perpetration and victimization, addressing multiple levels of the social ecology, emphasizing primary prevention, having sufficient dosage or intensity, being culturally relevant, being developed and implemented with stakeholders, and based on best available evidence.
