The Georgia Public-Private Partnership For Teen Pregnancy Prevention (P3)
Our statewide strategy is guided by a unified vision that aligns the work of multiple partners, strengthens policies that support the well-being of young people, builds the infrastructure to support systemic change, and builds the capacity of organizations and leaders to implement proven effective programs and practices. Our plan is organized into five strategic areas of focus.
By October 2015 we will decrease teen pregnancy by:
- Systems Change - Advance Georgia policies that support evidence-based programs and practices to prevent teen pregnancy
- Evidence-Based Programs - Increase the number of youth served by proven effective teen pregnancy prevention programs. Strengthen the capacity of organizations to implement and sustain high program and organizational performance.
- Coordinated Funding - Strengthen the coordination of funding among multiple public/private partners to build the infrastrure to deliver effective programs and practices.
- Evidence-Based Clinical Practices - Increase the number of youth served by teen friendly clinics. Strengthen the capacity of clinics to coordinate and adopt best practices for adolescent sexual and reproductive health
- Shared Measurement- Use shared measures to improve and align the evaluation of teen pregnancy prevention across the state. Use results to inform improvement of programs, practices, policy and future investment
Implementation Plans for Strategic Areas of Focus
P3 works on three levels:
- Statewide - P3 aligns and implements activities that support all counties
- Priority - P3 implements activities in the 11 counties with the highest teen birth rates and the highest populations. These counties are Fulton, DeKalb, Clayton, Cobb, Gwinnett, Richmond, Muscogee, Bibb, Chatham, Dougherty, and Hall.
- Intensive - P3 implements pilot projects in smaller catchment areas to demonstrate success before scaling up through larger systems.
