  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) was created in 1988 with resources from CDC’s human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) budget authority. Initially, DASH was located in the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion to ensure application of widespread HIV/AIDS prevention education for school-aged youth within a broad approach to school health programs. In January 2012, DASH was relocated organizationally to the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP). DASH’s research and programmatic activities were refocused on reducing adolescent sexual risk behaviors and preventing HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted disease (STD), and pregnancy among teens. DASH also continues to serve as the platform for CDC’s school-based surveillance systems and areas of research and research translation for adolescent and school health.
