This report addresses two dimensions of prevention programs directed at preventing teen pregnancy and limiting teen sexual behavior. First, a review of literature pertaining to prevention programs is conducted. The objective of the present literature review is: (a) to provide a compilation of prevention programs, especially since 2000, according to research-based dimensions, and (b) to place prevention programs activities within the context of a public policy evaluation that will provide a basis for appraising the appropriateness of government financing for various types of prevention programs. Second, data applicable to prevention programs is identified.
