Background and Brief Description The Division of Reproductive Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is seeking OMB review and approval for a new information collection to carry out an evaluation of the Columbia University Young Men’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention project funded by the ‘‘DP15–007 Effectiveness of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs Designed Specifically for Young Males’’ cooperative agreement. Approval is being requested for three years (Years 2– 4) of a 5-year project. During Year 3, a request will be made for an extension of information collection to cover Years 4– 5. Although teen birth rates (defined as live births per 1,000 15–19-year-old U.S. females) are declining, the U.S. teen birth rate remains higher than in other developed countries (Penman-Aguilar, Carter, Snead, & Kourtis, 2013). Furthermore, geographic, socioeconomic, and racial/ethnic disparities in teen birth rates persist. In 2012, non-Hispanic black and Hispanic teen birth rates were still more than two times higher than birth rates for nonHispanic white teens (Martin, Hamilton, Osterman, Curtin, & Mathews, 2013). In 2014 teen fatherhood occurred at a rate of 11.3 births per 1,000 men aged 15–19 (Hamilton, Martin, Osterman, Curtin, & Mathews, 2015) and resulted in approximately 156,000 births. According to the 2006–2010 National Survey of Family Growth, 15% of males fathered a child while younger than age 20 and rates of fathering a child were highest among non-Hispanic Black and Hispanic teens (Martinez, Daniels, & Chandra, 2012). Data suggest that teen fathers attend fewer years of school and are less likely to graduate from high school than teens who are not fathers (Fletcher & Wolfe, 2012). In addition, males just beyond their teen years (aged 20–24) father a higher proportion of children born to teen mothers than VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Jan 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 males aged 19 and younger (Elo, King, & Furstenburg, 1999; Males, 1995). Thus, it is important to reach both teenage as well as young adult males in their early twenties (hereafter collectively referred to as ‘‘young men’’) in teen pregnancy prevention efforts. Initiatives to prevent teen pregnancy have focused primarily on the role of female teens; however, young men can also play an important role and should be actively engaged in preventing teen pregnancy. Partner involvement in contraceptive decision making can increase use of effective methods of pregnancy prevention, including the use of dual protection (i.e., using condoms plus hormonal methods to prevent both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections [STIs]) (Kerns 2003, Harper 2004, Kraft 2010, Cox and Cox 2010). Increased use of effective contraception may be based on improved contraception-related communication, joint responsibility and decision making between partners, as well as male partners’ knowledge and attitudes about contraceptive methods (including condoms), support for use of moderately or highly effective methods, and desire for pregnancy prevention. Nevertheless, few interventions have focused on young men or been shown to be effective in reducing teen pregnancy. The HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review, (http://tppevidence review.aspe.hhs.gov/Review Protocol.aspx) conducted in 2012 by Mathematica Policy Research on behalf of the HHS (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2012) and updated in 2014 identified 35 rigorously evaluated interventions found to have an impact on sexual risk behaviors, teen pregnancy, and/or STIs. Most interventions were evaluated among young male and female participants; only one intervention was designed and evaluated specifically for males (Magura, Kang, & Shapiro 1994). Most of the 35 interventions were designed as HIV/STI prevention interventions and provide participants with information about condoms but little about other contraceptive options. They also do not address the shared responsibility of contraceptive decision making or sexual and reproductive health services. While programs that address malespecific risk and protective factors for teen pregnancy (e.g., Gottesgen & PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1743 Philiber, 2001; Ricardo, Nascimento, Fonseca & Segundo, 2010; Smith, Weinman, Buzi, & Benton, 2004; Tello, Cervantes, Cordova, & Santos, 2010) have been developed, there are no published results from rigorous evaluations of these interventions. If found to be efficacious, this study will add a male-focused program to the evidence review. This information collection request aims to address this gap in the literature through a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of a computer-assisted motivational interviewing application for mobile phones to prevent fathering an unintended pregnancy (CAMI–TPP) by males aged 15 to 24 years in comparison to a control group (CAMI-Fitness). CAMI will be conducted in a racially and ethnically diverse population of young males aged 15 to 24 years in New York City, NY. Young males will be recruited at 3 sites in New York City: The Young Men’s Clinic in Washington Heights and among students at the school-based health centers of two inner-city NYC high schools—George Washington Educational Campus in Washington Heights and John F. Kennedy campus in the Bronx. Participants will be assessed at baseline, immediately post-intervention (12 weeks), and at three follow-ups (24 weeks, 36 weeks, and 60 weeks) after participation in the 12-week intervention. Participants will also complete weekly online check-ins for 60 weeks from the time of enrollment in the project. Weekly check-ins have been used in past studies to increase retention during the study period and are very brief. The knowledge generated from this project will inform the HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review. If the intervention is found to be efficacious, it will provide Teen Pregnancy Prevention grantees of the Office of Adolescent Health, CDC, and Administration for Children and Families with a new intervention to reduce the number of young men who father a teen pregnancy. OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 2,598.

Proposed Project

    Evaluation of ``Effectiveness of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs 
Designed Specifically for Young Males: Columbia University Young Men's 
Project''--New--National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and 
Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Division of Reproductive Health, Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC), is seeking OMB review and approval for a new 
information collection to carry out an evaluation of the Columbia 
University Young Men's Teen Pregnancy Prevention project funded by the 
``DP15-007 Effectiveness of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs Designed 
Specifically for Young Males'' cooperative agreement. Approval is being 
requested for three years (Years 2-4) of a 5-year project. During Year 
3, a request will be made for an extension of information collection to 
cover Years 4-5.
    Although teen birth rates (defined as live births per 1,000 15-19-
year-old U.S. females) are declining, the U.S. teen birth rate remains 
higher than in other developed countries (Penman-Aguilar, Carter, 
Snead, & Kourtis, 2013). Furthermore, geographic, socioeconomic, and 
racial/ethnic disparities in teen birth rates persist. In 2012, non-
Hispanic black and Hispanic teen birth rates were still more than two 
times higher than birth rates for non-Hispanic white teens (Martin, 
Hamilton, Osterman, Curtin, & Mathews, 2013).
    In 2014 teen fatherhood occurred at a rate of 11.3 births per 1,000 
men aged 15-19 (Hamilton, Martin, Osterman, Curtin, & Mathews, 2015) 
and resulted in approximately 156,000 births. According to the 2006-
2010 National Survey of Family Growth, 15% of males fathered a child 
while younger than age 20 and rates of fathering a child were highest 
among non-Hispanic Black and Hispanic teens (Martinez, Daniels, & 
Chandra, 2012). Data suggest that teen fathers attend fewer years of 
school and are less likely to graduate from high school than teens who 
are not fathers (Fletcher & Wolfe, 2012). In addition, males just 
beyond their teen years (aged 20-24) father a higher proportion of 
children born to teen mothers than males aged 19 and younger (Elo, 
King, & Furstenburg, 1999; Males, 1995). Thus, it is important to reach 
both teenage as well as young adult males in their early twenties 
(hereafter collectively referred to as ``young men'') in teen pregnancy 
prevention efforts.
    Initiatives to prevent teen pregnancy have focused primarily on the 
role of female teens; however, young men can also play an important 
role and should be actively engaged in preventing teen pregnancy. 
Partner involvement in contraceptive decision making can increase use 
of effective methods of pregnancy prevention, including the use of dual 
protection (i.e., using condoms plus hormonal methods to prevent both 
pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections [STIs]) (Kerns 2003, 
Harper 2004, Kraft 2010, Cox and Cox 2010). Increased use of effective 
contraception may be based on improved contraception-related 
communication, joint responsibility and decision making between 
partners, as well as male partners' knowledge and attitudes about 
contraceptive methods (including condoms), support for use of 
moderately or highly effective methods, and desire for pregnancy 
prevention. Nevertheless, few interventions have focused on young men 
or been shown to be effective in reducing teen pregnancy. The HHS Teen 
Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review, (http://tppevidencereview.aspe.hhs.gov/ReviewProtocol.aspx) conducted in 2012 
by Mathematica Policy Research on behalf of the HHS (U.S. Department of 
Health and Human Services, 2012) and updated in 2014 identified 35 
rigorously evaluated interventions found to have an impact on sexual 
risk behaviors, teen pregnancy, and/or STIs. Most interventions were 
evaluated among young male and female participants; only one 
intervention was designed and evaluated specifically for males (Magura, 
Kang, & Shapiro 1994). Most of the 35 interventions were designed as 
HIV/STI prevention interventions and provide participants with 
information about condoms but little about other contraceptive options. 
They also do not address the shared responsibility of contraceptive 
decision making or sexual and reproductive health services.
    While programs that address male-specific risk and protective 
factors for teen pregnancy (e.g., Gottesgen & Philiber, 2001; Ricardo, 
Nascimento, Fonseca & Segundo, 2010; Smith, Weinman, Buzi, & Benton, 
2004; Tello, Cervantes, Cordova, & Santos, 2010) have been developed, 
there are no published results from rigorous evaluations of these 
interventions. If found to be efficacious, this study will add a male-
focused program to the evidence review. This information collection 
request aims to address this gap in the literature through a randomized 
controlled trial (RCT) of a computer-assisted motivational interviewing 
application for mobile phones to prevent fathering an unintended 
pregnancy (CAMI-TPP) by males aged 15 to 24 years in comparison to a 
control group (CAMI-Fitness).
    CAMI will be conducted in a racially and ethnically diverse 
population of young males aged 15 to 24 years in New York City, NY. 
Young males will be recruited at 3 sites in New York City: The Young 
Men's Clinic in Washington Heights and among students at the school-
based health centers of two inner-city NYC high schools--George 
Washington Educational Campus in Washington Heights and John F. Kennedy 
campus in the Bronx. Participants will be assessed at baseline, 
immediately post-intervention (12 weeks), and at three follow-ups (24 
weeks, 36 weeks, and 60 weeks) after participation in the 12-week 
intervention. Participants will also complete weekly online check-ins 
for 60 weeks from the time of enrollment in the project. Weekly check-
ins have been used in past studies to increase retention during the 
study period and are very brief.
    The knowledge generated from this project will inform the HHS Teen 
Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review. If the intervention is found to 
be efficacious, it will provide Teen Pregnancy Prevention grantees of 
the Office of Adolescent Health, CDC, and Administration for Children 
and Families with a new intervention to reduce the number of young men 
who father a teen pregnancy.
    OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is 
voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. 
The total estimated annualized burden hours are 2,598.
