HIV/STI/Teen Pregnancy Health Education Program

This site contains HIV/STI/Teen Pregnancy prevention messages that may not be appropriate for all audiences. If you are not seeking such information or may be offended by such material, please exit this Web site.

Under a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the New Hampshire Department of Education HIV/STI/Teen Pregnancy/Health Program has focused it's efforts on strengthening school health education programs. We provide professional development activities and technical assistance for:

  • Efforts targeted for high-risk youth;
  • HIV policy development;
  • Involvement of parents, students, and community members in HIV prevention education; and
  • The New Hampshire Health Education Curriculum Guidelines, aligning health education to national standards including authentic, performance-based assessment;
  • The use of effective evidence-based HIV prevention education curriculum.

We also conduct the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and in alternate years the School Health Profile (SHP), and we make this data available for use in program development.
