Teen Pregnancy Prevention

NVPCA’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program works to promote safe, supportive sexual and reproductive health education to reduce unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections among adolescents 12-19 years of age through evidence-based education programs and community outreach.

NVPCA works with Federally Qualified  Community Health Centers around the State of Nevada to provide capacity building assistance focused on the implementation of evidence-based curriculums targeted towards youth and families through clinic services and community partnerships. The programs will target adolescents and parents/caregivers who reside in Clark, Washoe, Lander, Nye, Carson City, and Eureka counties.

NVPCA’s TPP program is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) through a five year cooperative agreement. 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.
