Black and Latinx women aged 18–20 years have high rates of unplanned pregnancy. Furthermore, this age group is less likely than school-aged youth to be served by pregnancy prevention programs typically administered in schools. The study’s purpose was to assess the effectiveness of a new app-based teen pregnancy prevention program created for this population using an online- and texting-only recruitment and evaluation approach.
Impacts at 6 weeks are promising, particularly for a self-led intervention with no direct contact with study staff.
