Adolescent Pregnancy Program

Our Mission

To decrease teen pregnancies in Idaho, the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (APP) program aims to provide youth and their parents with access to sexual health education. Studies find that sexual health education helps teens delay sexual activity, use condoms and birth control correctly, avoid sexually transmitted diseases, and prevent pregnancy.

Teen Pregnancy in Idaho

Unplanned teen pregnancies cost Idaho taxpayers approximately 39 million dollars a year in Medicaid, foster care, and incarceration. These figures are not surprising given that children born from teen pregnancies often have poorer mental and physical health compared to children born from planned adult pregnancies.
