Program Summary

Safer Choices is a two year multi-component STD, HIV, and teen pregnancy prevention program for high school students. The program aims to reduce the frequency of unprotected sex among high-school-age students by reducing the number of sexually active students and increasing condom use among students who are sexually active. It seeks to motivate behavioral change by increasing students’ knowledge about HIV and STDs as well as promoting more positive norms and attitudes toward abstinence and condom use at the student, school, and community levels.
