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 National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program and Reproductive Health Facts and Reports
NVPCA’s TPP program is supported under a contract from the Nevada State Department of Health and Human Services through Grant Number 1901NVPREP from Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. These website contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Department nor Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.
Through the State Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) awards grants to State agencies to educate young people on both abstinence and contraception to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS. The program targets youth ages 10 - 19 who are homeless, in foster care, live in rural areas or in geographic areas with high teen birth rates, or come from racial or ethnic minority groups. The program also supports pregnant and parenting youth. During 2015 through 2021, NVPCA’s TPP program was funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Population Affairs (formerly Office of Adolescent Health), through a five-year cooperative agreement.
Nevada’s Community Health Centers (CHCs) provide access to health care for adolescents and young adults. Several serve as NVPCA PREP subrecipients and continue to offer pregnancy prevention evidence-based programs for adolescents.

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.
