Public Policy

Capitol Building - PolicyPublic policy analysis and advocacy is one approach that Healthy Teen Network takes to reach our vision and meet our mission. We monitor public policy developments of importance to adolescents and young adults and advocate for public policy change favorable to youth and their families.

We concentrate our public policy monitoring and analysis attention on and apply our public policy advocacy capability to the topic areas of health promotion, adolescent sexual and reproductive health, and pregnant and parenting teen support.

We implement our public policy and advocacy approach through a range of services and resources, including making public policy recommendations, taking positions on legislation and regulations, issuing alerts to mobilize our members and supporters to take public policy action, curating public policy resources of interest for our members and supporters, participating in national-level public policy advocacy and sector coalitions, and reporting on public policy development.
