    The programme contributed to preventing and reducing the levels of violence in Comayagua, Choluteca and Juticalpa municipalities. Youth who represented the greatest number of both offenders and victims were particularly vulnerable to the growing rise in criminality and gang-related violence. The programme exemplified the added value of a participatory, context-specific and targeted human security approach to crime prevention.
