California Personal Responsibility Education Program (CA PREP)

MO-11-0017 CAPREP

The main goal of the California Personal Responsibility Education Program (CA PREP) is to reduce rates of births and STIs including HIV among high-need youth populations by replicating or substantially incorporating elements of effective evidence-based program models (EBPMs) that educate adolescents on prevention of pregnancy and STIs including HIV.

Key components of CA PREP include:

  • Implementation of evidence -based program models
  • Integration of adulthood preparation subjects
  • Compliance with California Health and Safety and Education Codes
  • Community Outreach and engagement activities
  • Dissemination of information about Family PACT and other youth services
  • Participation in required evaluation and monitoring activities 

Section 2953 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 added Section 513 to Title V of the Social Security Act, codified at 42 U.S.C. 713, which authorized PREP. Through federal appropriation, CDPH/MCAH was awarded funds to implement PREP.
