  11. Invited commentary: Broadening the evidence for adolescent sexual and reproductive health and education in the United States

From 1998 to 2009, federal funding for sexuality education focused almost exclusively on ineffective and scientifically inaccurate abstinence-only-until-marriage (AOUM) programs. …
