Organization Description: About The National Campaign The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy works to ensure that all children are born into families committed to and ready to raise the next generation. Our goals over the next ten years are to: 1) reduce teen pregnancy by 50 percent; 2) reduce unplanned pregnancy among women age 18-29 by 25 percent; and 3) reduce racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in teen and unplanned pregnancy rates by 50 percent. We address the complex factors that lead to unplanned pregnancy through policy, research, capacity-building, convening, and strategic communications. We approach our work in an evidence-based, bi-partisan, non- ideological way. We focus on five strategies critical to reducing teen and unplanned pregnancy: 1) Make it the norm among young people to act consistently with their decisions about if and when to get pregnant; 2) Ensure that all young people have a trusted adult or social network with which they can discuss sex, relationships, and their futures; 3) Ensure that everybody has reliable, resonant, and accurate information about sexual health, including all contraceptive methods; 4) Ensure that everybody has full access to the full range of contraceptive methods within 60 minutes of where they live; and 5) Make pregnancy planning standard practice in settings influential in the lives of young people, such as education.
