Access PWWTW Materials:
In 2002, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy was awarded a grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help states and communities improve their teen pregnancy prevention efforts. Launched in October 2002, the project --- "Putting What Works to Work" --- is a multi-phased effort that identifies and consolidates research-based practices that prevent teen pregnancy, translates this research into user-friendly materials, and works directly with states and communities to incorporate such practices into their work. PWWTW will be led by the National Campaign with assistance from Child Trends, Philliber Research Associates, and other well-respected leaders in the field of adolescent well-being, research, and evaluation.
"We are delighted to have the opportunity to help those on the front lines put in place additional and more effective programs to prevent teen pregnancy," said Sarah Brown, Director of the National Campaign. "We are grateful to the CDC for their leadership on this issue and their confidence in the Campaign."
"Effective prevention is built on strong science,"said John Santelli, Medical Officer, CDC's Reproductive Health Program. The National Campaign has an excellent track record in using science to improve understanding of teen pregnancy and to promote effective prevention. Helping local communities understand and use research findings is critical if we hope to see continued progress in preventing teen pregnancy."
