Welcome to MOAPPP

MOAPPP's mission is to develop and strengthen policies and programs that promote adolescent sexual health, prevent adolescent pregnancy and support adolescent parents.


Twin Cities Mayors Support Youth and MOAPPP

MOAPPP was especially proud to have the mayors of Saint Paul and Minneapolis join us for MOAPPP's May 15 Benefit. These are leaders who clearly embrace the importance of supporting today’s adolescents. Mayor Coleman created the Second Shift Initiative, a nationally recognized effort to redefine the City’s role in shaping out-of-school time for all kids. Mayor Rybak was a key player in Blueprint for Action: Preventing Youth Violence in Minneapolis, a report and action plan that recognizes the need for teen pregnancy prevention in preparing youth for successful futures.

Minnesota Adolescent Sexual Health Report

This report is a summary of the sexual health of Minnesota’s adolescents and uses the most current data available. The report provides information on key sexual health indicators, such as pregnancy and birth statistics, STI/HIV, health disparities, low birth weight and prenatal care, sexual activity and other risk and protective factors in a brief and easy-to-read format. A copy of this report (pdf) is available on our website.
