The PraeWi project develops, implements, evaluates and disseminates preventive addiction aid measures and structures for institutional accommodation throughout Germany.

The aim is to create health-promoting environments for forced migrants and to enable equal health opportunities and participation. Through participation and empowerment of different relevant actors, forced migrants are to be enabled to act in an informed, self-determined and responsible manner.

The key steps to achieve these objectives are:


Determination of needs and resources


Implementation of the concept in three waves with two implementations per wave (6 implementations in total)

Participatory development of a multi-component prevention concept

Evaluation of the multi-component prevention concept

Examination of the pilot for its acceptance and feasibility in one institutional accommodation. This will be followed by appropriate conceptual adjustments, if necessary

Nationwide dissemination of the multi-component prevention concept
