The Teenage-Parent Program (TAPP) in Louisville, Kentucky, was initiated in 1970 by the Board of Education and the YWCA in conjunction with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the School of Medicine of the University of Louisville. From 1970 through 1982, 2293 students were enrolled in the TAPP program. Data on the age distribution of the participants, race distribution, location of primary antenatal care, number of clinic visits, obstetrical problems, mode of delivery, and perinatal outcome are presented. This study shows that such programs can improve the health of these students, increase the use of contraceptives, and improve school attendance.
