The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) SPF-PFS (SPF-PFS) will enhance its current underage drinking prevention efforts, targeting ages 12 to 20. The FSM will fund culturally appropriate, evidence-based prevention efforts-programs, policies, and practices-in its four states, which are all communities of high need. Each of the sub-recipient states is geographically, politically, culturally, and linguistically distinct from the others. The SPF-PFS will focus on: (1) reducing the availability of and access to alcohol among persons aged 12 to 20 within the four sub-recipient states and (2) establishing a standardized surveillance system to identify underage drinking.
