Supporting Statewide Implementation of Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs: Findings from Four PREP Grantees

Published: November 14, 2016

On November 8, the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) published Supporting Statewide Implementation of Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs: Findings from Four PREP Grantees. This report documents the implementation infrastructure of the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Personal Responsibility Education Program evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs in four states – California, Maine, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. Analysis of the programs implementation infrastructure showed that the four states differed in size; the role grantees took in supporting implementation, resources, and the settings in which the program operated.

Despite that, states had similarities in how they:

  • worked with providers before and in the early stages of implementation;
  • formed a pool of qualified trainers to train program facilitators and provide ongoing technical assistance;
  • went beyond federal performance measures requirements; and
  • established communication and feedback loops to facilitate data gathering, data sharing, and identification of lessons learned.
