  • Description:
    The Project Connect Health Systems Intervention (Project Connect) is an evidence-based, scalable intervention designed to increase the receipt of sexual and reproductive health care by at-risk youth by promoting health systems change.

    Project Connect provides a mechanism for linking youth into needed health care services, and has demonstrated its effectiveness in a large-scale research study. Results from the original trial conducted in a Los Angeles, CA public school district demonstrated an increase in receipt of birth control, pregnancy testing, and STD and HIV testing among intervention high school students, relative to controls. The Project Connect approach makes use of local level epidemiological and health systems data to identify community-based providers who are already doing a good job of providing sexual and reproductive health care to youth. A referral guide is then created containing pertinent information on the identified providers, which is then distributed to individuals within organizations with access to large numbers of at-risk youth for the purpose of referring youth to these community providers for care.
