Publisher: Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation
At the time the state Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) grantees were beginning to enact their plans to prevent teen pregnancy, grantees reported undertaking additional activities to create an infrastructure to support successful large-scale implementation of the evidence-based programs with fidelity through targeted partnerships. This brief documents the implementation infrastructure that four states—California, Maine, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina—developed to support implementation of their PREP evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs. It also shares key lessons learned by these four states as others build or refine their own network of support.
