Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Teen pregnancy emerged as a top health priority in Sandusky County according to a Community Health Assessment conducted by Health Partners 2000. In an effort to reduce the teen pregnancy rate in Ohio, Wellness Block Grant funds for teen pregnancy prevention became available in 1997 through the Family and Children First Council. Teen Pregnancy Prevention Advisory Group (TPPAG) was formed to assist with planning and to provide advice on issues related to teen pregnancy prevention. Through a contract arrangement with the Sandusky County Health Department, a teen pregnancy prevention coordinator was hired to work on planning and the implementation of a countywide prevention effort.
