Teen Pregnancy Rates

More from this show

A study by the Guttmacher Institute and Columbia University shows that higher use and effectiveness of contraceptives has resulted in big declines in teen pregnancy nationwide, including here in Arizona. Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Health Services reported the state’s teen pregnancy rate for females 15 to 19 years of age decreased 49 percent from 2004 to 2014. Brenda Thomas, CEO of Arizona Family Health Partnership, which provides Title X funding to health centers serving low-income communities across Arizona with contraceptives and other services, will talk about the reports and why teen pregnancy rates are down.
