Oregon is upheld nationally as a leader in youth sexual health policy and partnerships. Developed in 2009, the Oregon Youth Sexual Health Plan addressed teen pregnancy prevention in a more holistic manner - shifting youth sexual health from a risk-focused paradigm to a youth-development model of sexual health and well-being.

Beginning in 2018, the effective contraceptive use CCO incentive measure includes adolescents ages 15-17, with a total measure age range now reflecting 15-50 years old. This webinar series has been designed to help support Oregon's CCOs in meeting this measure for this younger population by digging deeper into the many intersecting issues of youth sexual health and the lives of Oregon adolescents.

This six-part webinar series will share Oregon's approach to youth sexual health, present and explore recent data, and dig deeper into each of the Oregon Youth Sexual Health Plan's five goals. By the end of the webinar series, participants will be able to:

1)      Share current state-level data regarding youth sexual health measures, including teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and sexual violence.

2)      Understand current collaborative approaches happening throughout the state in each of the Youth Sexual Health Plan goal areas.

3)      Identify how CCOs can improve youth sexual health through working in partnership with schools, local public health departments, nonprofits and more.

Presenters: Shelagh Johnson, Youth Sexual Health Coordinator, Oregon Health Authority; Mariotta Gary-Smith, Health Equity Strategist, Health Share of Oregon; and special guests!
