Adolescent HIV/STI and Unintended Pregnancy Prevention
Purpose of Demonstration Sites
NACCHO''s Adolescent HIV/STI and Unintended Pregnancy Prevention Project provides local health departments (LHDs) and their school and community partners with capacity-building assistance and financial support for HIV/STI and unintended pregnancy prevention through its LHD Demonstration Sites Program. Both the project and program are funded by the Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The overarching goal of the Demonstration Sites Program is to build the capacity of all LHDs to prevent adolescent HIV, STIs (sexually transmitted infections), and/or unintended pregnancy in their communities. This is accomplished through the support of LHD demonstration sites that plan and implement innovative adolescent HIV, STI, and unintended pregnancy activities, disseminate lessons learned, and develop tools and resources.
From 2004–2011, NACCHO’s Adolescent HIV/STI and Unintended Pregnancy Prevention LHD Demonstration Sites Program has funded 12 LHD demonstration sites.
