Implications and importance of program evaluation: Reviews of the use of evidence in public health programs for teen pregnancy prevention by the Office of Adolescent Health
The goals of the grantee-led and the federal-led evaluation efforts are to 1) add to the evidence base by evaluating new and untested program models and strategies for TPP and 2) understand how to effectively replicate and implement evidence-based program models and reproduce the impacts from the original program evaluations.
As the final year of evaluation for the first group of grantees concludes in 2015, OAH has collected the impact reports of all programs. This presentation will summarize the grantee-led and the federally-led evaluations, lessons learned during the evaluation process, and review the use of evidence in public health programs to prevent teen pregnancy.
