Program Archive on Sexuality, Health, and Adolescence

The Program Archive on Sexuality, Health, and Adolescence, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the Office of Adolescent Health in the Department of Health and Human Services, is a collection of 37 effective program replication kits designed to reduce teen pregnancy and STI/HIV/AIDS in adolescents. In establishing the archive, Sociometrics aims to promote the dissemination, creative adaptation, and evaluation of these effective programs in schools, clinics, and community-based organizations. The programs were selected by a scientist expert panel for their demonstrated effectiveness in changing fertility- and STI/HIV/AIDS-related behaviors among teens.

All replication kits are designed to be comprehensive, user-friendly and visually appealing, and include a User's Guide, Prevention Minimum Evaluation Data Set, the original evaluation instruments (if available), as well as original program materials including facilitator's manuals, curriculum guides, games and masters for handouts. The complete sample program Horizons is provided below.

Note: some materials used in the original intervention cannot be digitized, but are available for purchase from Sociometrics.
