Teen pregnancy is responsible for numerous negative outcomes for adolescent mothers, their offspring, and society. Myriad programs exist to address this problem; however, many programs administered do not monitor pregnancy rates. A systematic review was performed to assess programs that use pregnancy rates as an outcome measure. For primary prevention programs, components that address life skills and provide contraception information were found to be the most effective. For secondary prevention programs, successful programs provided immediate access to contraceptives.
