REPLICATING EVIDENCE-BASED TEEN PREGNANCYPREVENTION (TPP) PROGRAM

The Office of Adolescent Health is responsible for implementing and administering the national, evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program, a competitive grant program. The OAH TPP program is one of a growing number of federal programs that focus on providing evidence of what works, investing in new and innovative approaches, and fostering a culture of learning.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Through the TPP program, OAH invests in the implementation of evidence-based TPP programs, and provides funding to develop and evaluate new and innovative approaches to prevent teen pregnancy. Evidence-based TPP programs are those that have been proven, through rigorous evaluation, to reduce teen pregnancy and/or sexual risk behaviors associated with teen pregnancy. Currently, the HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review covers a variety of diverse programs, including sexuality education programs; youth development programs; abstinence education programs; clinic-based programs; and programs specifically designed for diverse populations and settings.
