The Pulse Project evaluation

Child Trends is collaborating with Healthy Teen Network (HTN) to evaluate their online app-based approach to teen pregnancy prevention called The Pulse Project. The Pulse Project incorporates an app-based approach to increase the use of clinics and highly effective contraceptives among African American and Latino women, ages 18 to 20, across the United States. Child Trends and HTN plan to implement and evaluate the app with 1,500 women (750 each in the treatment and control groups) across a 3-year implementation period. This evaluation will include both qualitative and quantitative components, and is funded by the Office of Adolescent Health.
