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.|
