Subject: Youth Pregnancy, Youth Development, Education, Research
Deadline: Mar. 3, 2015
A collaborative initiative between the HHS Office of Adolescent Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the purpose of this research opportunity is to rigorously evaluate innovative interventions designed for young men aged 15-24 years old to reduce their risk of fathering a teen pregnancy that can be feasibly implemented in target settings (e.g., clinics, schools, community settings, youth-serving organizations, correctional settings). Up to three 5-year research projects will be funded, with at least one project evaluating an intervention targeted at young men aged 15-19 years.
Projects will be funded under either Component A or B, based on the readiness of the intervention to be rigorously evaluated. Applicants will submit a proposal using either: A) an existing intervention that has promising process data and/or some evidence of effectiveness, but has not been rigorously evaluated; or B) a partially developed intervention to be finalized prior to evaluation. Component A and Component B projects will rigorously evaluate the interventions with an experimental approach, package efficacious interventions, and provide CDC and OAH with final intervention package materials , to reproduce, publish, or otherwise use the work for public health purposes, and to authorize others to do so in accordance with applicable grant regulations.
