Florida Teens need comprehensive, medically accurate, and age appropriate sexual health education that provides them with the information and skills for responsible decision making. Join us by signing the Pledge to support keeping Florida teens safe by providing them with comprehensive sex education.
The teen birth rate in the U.S. reached an all-time low last year, the CDC reported. One expert said the bad economy and teen pregnancy reality shows may have played a role in the decline.
The CDC released new data which found that fewer babies were born to teens in 2010 than in any year since 1946.
15- to 24-year-olds represent 1/4 of all sexually active people, yet account for nearly half of the new cases of STIs each year.
Healthy Teens Campaign
The mission of the Healthy Teens Campaign is to improve the health and safety of Florida teens through comprehensive sex education. Members of the coalition engage in advocacy and education to ensure that Florida teens receive the information they need to make healthy decisions, including information about abstinence, contraception and methods of disease prevention. As a community, we want to see comprehensive sex education in Florida classrooms.
