ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama has increased funding for sex education measures designed to prevent pregnancies and reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The author notes that the administration of former U.S. president George W. Bush focused on promoting abstinence among teenagers and notes how federal funds will be allocated to an initiative to prevent teen pregnancies and the Personal Responsibility Education program (PREP), which offers grants for sex education. Abstinence-based programs were included with comprehensive sex education programs in the U.S. Health Care Reform Bill. Evidence-based sex education programs and research and demonstration programs are noted.
