A National Strategy to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. Strengthen the National Response to Prevent Out-of Wedlock Teen Pregnancies

10/01/1996

Teen pregnancy is a problem that impacts nearly every community. The responsibility to solve this problem lies with all of us, including families, communities, and young people themselves. In calling for a national strategy, Congress has recognized the critical importance of assuring that every community, large or small, urban or rural, is working to find solutions to this problem.

As part of the national strategy, we will use new resources to strengthen, integrate, and support additional teen pregnancy prevention and other youth-related activities in communities across the country. Further, we will work with our partners to identify additional promising efforts and disseminate information about them to other communities.
