The Department of Defense is using integrated primary prevention to prevent multiple harmful behaviors–including sexual assault, harassment, domestic abuse, child abuse, and suicide. Research shows these behaviors share similar risk and protective factors. By focusing on shared factors, the DoD will foster healthier command climates, leading to enhanced readiness and a greater ability for Service members to execute critical missions.
