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.
The National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program and Reproductive Health Facts and Reports
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.

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.
