The Department of Health and Human Services is soliciting proposals to conduct Secondary Data Analysis of Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Programs.
This purpose of this announcement is to solicit applications for projects that will contribute to the evidence base by enhancing understanding of interventions identified as effective by the HHS Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and existing disparities.
Specifically, OAH is seeking projects that will:
- Identify factors that improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of evidence
based pregnancy prevention programs for adolescents or young adults, or reduce
disparities, by age, gender, race/ethnicity, or setting.
- Identify and/or validate core program components or “active ingredients” essential for
the evidence-based programs and practices to produce the desired outcomes.
- Identify specific characteristics of program models, participants, or program
implementation associated with program impacts.
- Apply innovative methods or techniques from other disciplines that are novel to
pregnancy prevention research such as network analysis, matching and distillation
techniques, system dynamics modeling or geographic information systems, to address
questions beyond the general effectiveness of evidence-based pregnancy prevention
