The study examined the effectiveness of the program using a quasi-experimental design conducted in six community-based primary health care clinics serving primarily urban, low-income, African-American patients in the Washington, D.C., area. The study compared the outcomes of 74 teen-mothers seeking services in three intervention sites that implemented the Generations program with the outcomes of 50 teen mothers seeking services in three comparison sites that did not offer the program but provided standard community-based pediatric primary care. Outcomes were measured 12 months after baseline.

The study found that 12 months after study enrollment, mothers in the intervention group were more likely to report using effective contraception the last time they had sex. Mothers in the intervention group were also more likely to report using a condom the last time they had sex.

Notes

Some study entries may include more than one citation because each citation examines a different follow-up period from the same study sample, or because each citation examines a different set of outcome measures on the same study sample. A blank cell indicates the study did not examine any outcome measures within the particular outcome domain or the findings for the outcome measures within that domain did not meet the review evidence standards.

Information on evidence of effectiveness is available only for studies that received a high or moderate rating. Read the description of the review process for more information on how these programs are identified.
