Click this hashtag to join the conversation on National Teen Prevention Month: #NTPPM
“There is a strong national commitment to teen pregnancy prevention and a continued focus on this issue. National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month highlights the historic declines in the rates of teen pregnancy and births in the United States (significant declines have occurred in all 50 states and among all racial/ethnic groups). There is more work to be done because great disparities remain.
Despite historic declines, the U.S. teen birth rate is still higher than that of many other developed countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom (get more information here).
We can do better. So join us this May for National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month—31 days devoted to the historic progress that has been made and spotlighting how much work is being done.”
