B. SCIENTIFIC REVIEW AND EVALUATION

1. Characteristics and occurrence of the intervention

Each Handbook includes general information identifying and describing the intervention. As preventive interventions can range from community-based interventions to measures targeted to individuals (e.g. behavioural, dietary, pharmacological measures), this information may vary substantially between interventions. Depending on the intervention, this section may include information on production and use, occurrence and exposure, prevalence, risk factors, and regulations and guidelines.

Given the wide variety of preventive interventions, this section will have an outline specific to each Handbook.
