Assessing the impact of interventions to reduce teenage childbearing in Latin America

From 2009 to 2011, PEP collaborated with the Gender and Diversity Unit of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in a project that aimed to promote the reduction of teen pregnancy in Latin America.The initiative was launched with a joint call for proposals of projects aimed at assessing the impact of promising interventions to reduce or prevent teenage childbearing in the region. But its implementation relied mostly on PEP's experience in supporting local researchers in using experimental approaches to conduct rigorous impact evaluation of social policies/programs, through its PIERI program.

From this call, two proposals were selected - from Colombia and Chile - by a joint committee of IADB and PEP experts to receive IADB funding and PEP scientific support and mentoring throughout project implementation:

Both research teams attended a start-up workshop in December 2009 at the IADB headquarters in Washington DC, where they met the selection committee - by then turned into an advisory committee - to discuss their proposals and receive technical advice. By the end of December, they presented the adjusted versions of their research proposals. Interim versions of the reports were presented by the end of March, and the authors received comments from the consultative group. Final reports were published in early 2011.
