Who is using the Prevention Hub?

Features on Prevention Hub members.

IMIFAP – Yo Quiero, Yo Puedo (el Insitituto Mexicano de Investigación de Familia y Población, or the Mexican Institute for Family and Population Research) is a non-governmental organization headquartered in Mexico City, Mexico.

The Prevention Hub ensures that we have the latest knowledge in prevention when going out into our communities. Our learning from the hub influences the workshops we run and the communications we have with others working in the field in Mexico. We look forward to there being more information available in Spanish to enable others in South America to make use of it directly.
