Federal Review of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs Identifies Positive Prevention PLUS as Effective Program
We are very pleased to announce that Positive Prevention PLUS was added to the OAH's list of effective teen pregnancy prevention curricula (also known as Evidence-Based Interventions or EBIs).
Mathematica, the research group under contract with the federal Office of Adolescent Heath to oversee the research, had previously identified 37 other programs meeting the review criteria for evidence of effectiveness. These criteria require programs to show evidence of at least one favorable, statistically significant impact on at least one sexual risk behavior or reproductive health outcome of interest (sexual activity, number of sexual partners, contraceptive use, STIs, or pregnancy).
Information about the OAH TPP Program and the evaluation findings, including reports, factsheet, and infographics, are posted here.
