History of Title XX
The Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Programs (OAPP) was created in 1978 to administer adolescent pregnancy programs under Title VI of the Public Health Service Act (P.L. 95-626). This was the first Federal adolescent pregnancy program aimed at providing comprehensive health, education and social services to pregnant and parenting adolescents. In 1981, Title XX of the Public Health Service Act (P.L.97-35), also known as the Adolescent Family Life (AFL) legislation, replaced Title VI and legislated discretionary funds for research, care, and prevention demonstration projects. Since FY 2010, the AFL program was appropriated funds to solely support AFL Care demonstration grants. Throughout the years, OAPP has supported approximately 400 Adolescent Family Life (AFL) care and prevention demonstration projects and nearly 100 research projects.
