Title: Evaluation of Pregnancy Prevention Approaches—Phase 1.
OMB No.: New collection.
Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Evaluation of Pregnancy Prevention Approaches study. This study will assess the effectiveness of a range of programs designed to prevent or reduce sexual risk behavior and pregnancy among older adolescents. Knowing what types of programs are effective will inform programmatic decisions by policymakers and practitioners.
The proposed activity involves the collection of information from observations of program activities and interviews with a range of knowledgeable experts about various aspects of existing prevention programs and topics the experts view as important to address through evaluation. These data will be used to help inform decisions about the types of programs to be evaluated in the study.
Respondents: The respondents will be researchers and policy experts, program directors, program staff, or school administrators. Data will be collected from observations of program activities as well.
