dc.description.abstractChildren raised in socio-economically disadvantaged regions have increased probabilities of school failure, delinquency, drug abuse, and juvenile crime. The Pathways to Prevention project attempts to reduce these risks in a disadvantaged community through the implementation of child-focused (school-based) and family focused (community-based) interventions. Preliminary results from an economic evaluation of the Pathways project are reported. Project costs are compared with the costs of a number of remedial interventions. It is not argued that preventive interventions should be favoured over remedial interventions. Rather, investing more in prevention may help alleviate the pressure on the overburdened remedial sector, resulting in potential cost-savings.en_US
