Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Oklahoma is ranked 4th in the nation for the highest teen birth rates for 15-19 year olds. We’ve experienced historic declines over the past decade, but there’s still work to do. For the most current statistics, resources and strategies for continued improvement, check out Healthy Teens Oklahoma, Power to Decide and Amplify.
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 outcomes 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.
