Engaging Young Men in Reproductive Health - Evaluating Innovative Approaches

Recognizing the important role of young men in promoting reproductive health, the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH)external icon supports five projects and OAH and CDC are working together to support three additional projects (Table 1), that implement and evaluate innovative approaches to educate and engage young men in reproductive health and teen pregnancy prevention efforts.

As of October 31, 2017, these projects have collectively served over 528 young men, and an average of 70% of these participants attended 75% or more of the program sessions in which they were enrolled.  Grantees trained 95 new facilitators and developed partnerships with more than 200 organizations.

Descriptions of each grantee’s project are listed below:
