What is a technical package?
A technical package is a collection of strategies that represent the best available evidence to prevent or reduce public health problems like violence. They can help improve the health and well-being of communities. A technical package has three parts.

- The approach includes the specific ways to advance the strategy. This can be accomplished through programs, policies, and practices.
- The evidence for each of the approaches in preventing violence or its associated risk factors is included as the third component.
