Mission Statement

Group of teens

The purpose of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program at UConn Health is to provide the most current information on strategies being used to prevent adolescent pregnancy in Connecticut. Our program tracks where in Connecticut adolescent childbearing is at its worst. We provide technical expertise, training, and monitoring to the State of Connecticut’s Department of Social Services (DSS) funded programs using scientifically-proven approaches to adolescent pregnancy prevention with the aim of reducing teen pregnancy, adolescent childbearing and its inherent costs to society.
