Description: This funding opportunity is for new research, evaluation, and statistics grant projects that would make significant contributions to the mission of the organization and to the pregnancy prevention and family planning fields. Under this announcement, research and evaluation projects will be considered that encourage healthy behavior choices to delay the onset of sexual activity, reduce number of sexual partners, and if sexually active, encourage the use of preventative measure for STIs and pregnancy. These grants are for research that can be carried out within 1-2 years, such as secondary data analyses using existing program and evaluation data or administrative data. The purpose of these grants will be to allow the exploration of new questions in the area of promotion of healthy behavior to prevent pregnancy through analyses of existing data, new or advanced methods of secondary data analyses, or novel combination and integration of datasets. Grants under this announcement are not intended as a means to carry out data collection, ongoing data analyses or for the maintenance and distribution of data sets. Potential areas of investigation include: Identify factors that improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of pregnancy prevention programs for adolescents or young adults, or reduce disparities, by age, gender, race/ethnicity, or setting. Identify and/or validate core program components or “active ingredients” essential for programs and practices to produce the desired outcomes. Identify specific characteristics of program models, participants, or program implementation associated with program impacts. Apply innovative methods or techniques from other disciplines that are novel to pregnancy prevention research such as network analysis, matching and distillation techniques, system dynamics modeling or geographic information systems, to address questions beyond the general effectiveness of pregnancy prevention programs.
