About NETCAPP


The New England Training Center for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (NETCAPP) is a project coordinated by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. and funded through a Cooperative Agreement under the HIV Integration and Other Preventive Services into Reproductive Health Project by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of this project is to work with individuals and organizations throughout New England to select, implement and evaluate Science-Based Approaches (SBA) to prevent pregnancy, HIV and STI infection in adolescents. Established in 2005, NETCAPP has provided technical assistance and training to a number of partners in New England in order to develop their capacity to provide SBA to adolescents in their community.

This website provides information on trainings and technical assistance by NETCAPP and its partners as well as information on SBA, teen pregnancy, HIV and STIs, and community involvement.

The JSI team involved with this project include:

Myriam Hernandez Jennings, Project Director
Amy Behrens, Program Manager
Stephanie Moxley, Project Evaluator
