Abstract: Purpose: After significant decline since the early 1990's, rates of teen births in Baltimore increased in 2005 and 2006. Despite a slight rate decrease (from 66.4 to 63.7/1,000 females age 15-19) from 2007 to 2008, the City's teen birth rate remained almost double the Maryland rate of 32.7/1,000. The purpose of this initiative was to develop a strategic, sustainable plan to reduce teen birth, STI, and HIV rates in Baltimore City. The plan was developed as a partnership between Baltimore City Health Department, Healthy Teen Network and Johns Hopkins University and utilized the CDC adopted Getting to Outcomes (GTO) model to conduct a community needs assessment.
