Abstract

Millions of dollars are poured into teen sexual education in the United States each year; yet the United States is still ranked number one for teenage pregnancies and has one of the top three sexually transmitted infection rates in the world. Programs that focus on adolescent sexual health, sexually transmitted infection prevention, and sexual abuse prevention will be evaluated through this literature review as well as state and federal legislative rulings on the topics.
