TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION

NVPCA’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program worked 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 targeted adolescents and parents/caregivers who reside in Clark, Washoe, Lander, Nye, Carson City, and Eureka counties.

The NVPCA invites applications from Nevada FQHCs for the operation of a Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) program that includes utilizing evidence-based programs and positive youth
development engagement strategies for eligible adolescents and/or adults for FFY21. Get more information

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.

Nevada's Community Health Centers (CHCs) also provide access to health care for teens and young adults.

Teen Health Essentials – Parent Resources

These PDFs are informational documents for parents. They are templates in that there is a space for participating FQHCs to add their logo so they can print copies for parents/guardians of adolescents and to even consider having them on the FQHC’s websites for download – of course with their own logo – always keeping NVPCA’s logo and the grant disclaimer. There is one document in English and Spanish on each of the 4 topics. They are meant to be printed with English on one-side of the page and Spanish on the reverse.
