Making Adaptations to Evidence-based Pregnancy and STD/HIV Prevention Programs

This section contains adaptation kits with practical tools and resources to guide adolescent reproductive health practitioners in making effective adaptations and maintaining fidelity to program core components.

The adaptation kits were developed to provide clarity on how each program was designed, its core components, and the types of adaptations that are considered safe and those that should be avoided.

Each adaptation kit includes:

  1. Behavior-Determinant-Intervention (BDI) Logic Models
  2. Core Components
  3. Green/Yellow/Red Light Adaptations
  4. Fidelity and Adaptation Monitoring Logs

The following adaptation kits are available:
