Sex Education and Other Programs That work to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, HIV & Sexually Transmitted Infections

Nineteen programs – 16 sex education and three youth development programs – have been proven to reduce teen pregnancies and STDs or cause at least two beneficial changes in sexual risk behaviors, according to Science and Success: Sex Education and Other Programs That Work to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, HIV & Sexually Transmitted Infections , a new report by Advocates for Youth.

The most common behavior change was a delay in the initiation of sex among teens, an outcome shared by 12 of the programs – 11 sex education programs and one early childhood education initiative. Despite their proven effectiveness, none of the sex education programs are eligible for funding through the federal government's multi-year, multi-million dollar abstinence initiative because, even though they encourage abstinence, these programs include information about condoms and contraception.
