Big Challenges and Bright Opportunities: Adolescent Reproductive Health in the Lone Star State

We are excited to share our new research report, “Big Challenges and Bright Opportunities: Adolescent Sexual Health in Texas.”

More than 750 Texas voices were engaged in this work, including doctors, educators, social workers, faith leaders, policymakers, advocates, parents, and Texas youth themselves.

The research dives into the uniquely Texas landscape of teen pregnancy, sex education, access to contraception, and other key factors that shape sexual health for Texas teens.
