Teen Pregnancy Prevention

Oklahoma is ranked 2nd in the nation for the highest teen birth rates for 15-19 year olds. According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, births in Oklahoma cost taxpayers at least $190 million each year. In addition, over half of all high school students in Oklahoma reported that they have had sex.

The Tulsa Health Department’s Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) specializes in empowering young adults to make proud and responsible decisions, as well as educating them about the dangers and risks associated with sexual activity. The goal of the program is to prevent teen births and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. PREP works with schools in Tulsa County, especially those that have the highest teen birth rates, in an effort to influence change and increase education.
