West Virginia
Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Initative



The Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Initiative is a focus area of the Title X Family Planning Program. The goal of APPI is to reduce the number of pregnancies among adolescents by providing outreach and education. West Virginiaís youth help accomplish this goal, after receiving prevention education, through improved decision making, choosing abstinence, and gaining access to contraceptive services.

The Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Initiative (APPI) provides development, oversight and coordination of adolescent pregnancy prevention activities statewide.

Pregnancy Prevention Specialists work to increase public awareness of problems associated with early sexual activity and childbearing. Specialists collaborate with public schools, colleges and community organizations to promote regional training, events and activities.

Because teen pregnancy is closely linked to other critical social issues, educational presentations are available for classrooms, community groups, faith-based organizations and parents.  Professional development is provided for facilitators and educators who are interested in furthering the mission of APPI.

Contact your regional specialist or the programís director to schedule an event or presentation in your area.
