Resources on Evidence-Based TPP Programs
Evidence-based programs have been tested with specific populations. These studies can help organizations choose programs that will work well for their community and maximize results. When choosing programs, communities should weigh the evidence behind a program’s success and how well the program fits their specific needs. The HHS Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) and OAH have two resources that can help groups with program selection.
- The HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review from ASPE shares information about the studies behind the current list of evidence-based TPP programs. It includes the level of evidence behind a program based on the rigor of the studies that have evaluated it. This information comes from a systematic review that began in 2009.
- OAH’s Searchable Database of Evidence-Based TPP Programs helps communities find programs that fit their needs. Picking programs from the dropdown menu provides an overall profile of the program, including the settings where the program is held, demographics of the youth served, the outcomes affected, and the main pieces of the program. It also includes guidance for how to pick programs and information about adapting programs.
