Why Teen Clinic?
- Oklahoma is consistently in the top five states for highest teen birth rates in the United States.
- Teen parents are more likely to drop out of high school, and even less likely to graduate. Teen mothers are likely to have a second unplanned pregnancy.
- The current generation of teens and young adults are the first to see an increase in HIV infections since the early 1990s.
- Youth ages 15-24 make up just over ¼ of the sexually active population, but account for ½ of the 20 million new sexually transmitted infections that occur in the US each year.
