Teenage pregnancy prevention framework

15 January 2018

Public Health England (PHE) and the Local Government Association (LGA) have published the 'Teenage pregnancy prevention framework' to support local areas to assess the effectiveness of teenage pregnancy prevention programmes. The guidance provides advice on identifying gaps and maximising assets to strengthen the prevention pathway for all young people, and it offers a list of ten key factors of effective local strategies that adopt a collaborative whole-systems approach.

Relationships and sex education (RSE) is one of the ten factors listed. Provision of youth-friendly sexual health and contraception services and condom schemes is another.
