Adolescent Sibling Pregnancy Prevention Project aims to prevent pregnancy among adolescents (aged 11 – 17) with a pregnant or parenting teenage sibling. This group is identified as being at high risk of early pregnancy. There is no prescribed intervention except for a once-a-month face-to-face meeting with the adolescent and a specially trained case manager. Activities that can be offered include individualised care and sex education, including information on abstinence and contraception. On average, adolescents receive 18.4 hours of services, or approximately two hours per month.
