What Works for Adolescent Reproductive Health: Lessons from Experimental Evaluations of Programs and Interventions. Fact Sheet. Publication #2008-20
Ball, Victoria; Moore, Kristin A.
Child Trends
The reproductive health of American adolescents has been, and continues to be, a matter of serious concern. America's teen birth rate--already the highest among developed nations--is again on the rise, and rates of sexually transmitted diseases among American teens are very high. As such, the development and identification of effective interventions to help youth avoid negative reproductive health outcomes is of great importance. To identify programs that work and isolate the components of programs that contribute to programs' success, the authors have synthesized findings from the Child Trends database of experimental evaluations of social interventions for children and youth--LINKS. LINKS currently includes more than 50 programs whose effects on reproductive health have been experimentally evaluated. (Contains 12 endnotes.) [This report was supported by The Stewart Trust.]
