In order to identify programs effective in reducing behaviors that increase the risks of pregnancy and STIs, HHS conducted an independent systematic review of programs to reduce teen pregnancy, STIs, and associated sexual risk behaviors. This review established criteria for assessing the quality of an evaluation study and the strength of evidence for a particular intervention. Findings are used to identify program models meeting the criteria for the HHS List of Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program Models.
