Reduce Unintended Pregnancy & Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) Prevention

Goals

Adolescence is a time of tremendous opportunity and change.  Becoming a sexually healthy adult is one of the most significant developmental tasks of adolescence. Healthy sexuality is to be respected, and requires a sense of responsibility to be emotionally and physically prepared and protected. Youth are less likely to have an unintended pregnancy or contract an STI if they have access to and use medically accurate and culturally appropriate information along with health services and well-developed skills to make thoughtful choices about relationships and sexual health.
