Abstract
  • Adolescent pregnancy and childbirth are the second leading cause of death for teen girls worldwide. In Multnomah County, as throughout the United States, teen pregnancy rates are high and disproportionately affect the Hispanic community. Hispanic adolescent females have a teen pregnancy rate over two times higher than white adolescent females. The purpose of the Seventeen Days program is to reduce risky sexual behavior of sexually active Hispanic teen girls through sexual health education. The main goal of Seventeen Days is to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection rates using interactive education on sexual health, condom use, and risk reduction. Using a free mobile device application offered in both English and Spanish, participating young women will work their way through a series of videos and utilize cognitive rehearsal to develop safer sexual practices. Though these young women will be completing the program privately, clinicians will have access to a monitoring system to track participant progress and record significant program milestones. This program is targeted toward sexually active, 14-19-year-old Hispanic females in Portland.
