About The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy (The National Campaign) works to improve the lives and future prospects of children and families by ensuring that all children are born into families committed to and ready for the demanding task of raising the next generation by reducing unplanned pregnancy among teens and young adults. The National Campaign works towards three ultimat...e outcomes:
- Reduce the rate of teen pregnancy by 50% by 2026.
- Reduce the rate of unplanned pregnancy among women age 18-29 by 25% by 2026.
- Reduce the disparities in teen pregnancy and unplanned pregnancy rates among racial/ethnic and socioeconomic groups by 50% by 2026.
We are committed to achieving these goals by keenly focusing on evidence-based and informed strategies; a bi-partisan, non-ideological approach; the belief that there is a place for everyone and every sector at the table; the recognition that we must meet our audiences where they are; and a relentless pursuit to reduce disparities.
