In September 2016, the School-Based Health Alliance was awarded a two-year cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Adolescent and School Health to: (1) increase collaboration between CDC and national education and public health partners to promote efforts to reduce HIV, other STDs, and unintended pregnancy, as well as reduce behaviors that contribute to health risks among adolescents that reflect the CDC-developed approach to school-based programs; (2) increase community capacity to implement the CDC-developed school-based approaches for sexual health education, key sexual health services, and safe and supportive environments for reducing HIV infection and other STDs among adolescents; and (3) increase dissemination of CDC-develop school-based approaches for sexual health education, sexual health services, and safe supportive environments.

The Alliance will partner with several national organizations on this initiative, including: Advocates for Youth, the National Association of County and City Health Officials, and the National Coalition of STD Directors. Additional information about how the Alliance will help achieve the aforementioned goals is forthcoming.
