Let's Talk About Sex
Starting in 2012, the Knox Adolescent Partners in Prevention Initiative (KAPPI), along with the Knox County Health Department, launched a campaign aimed at lowering the rate of teen pregnancy and STDs in Knox County. This campaign includes this website, posters, billboards and public service announcements (PSAs), as well as a Let's Talk Facebook page and a My Body, My Future Twitter account.
The goal is to raise awareness about these issues among both teens and parents. In reaching parents, the hope is to encourage them to talk to their kids, since we believe that's the best way to prevent teen pregnancy. For teens, the hope is that they will make good decisions regarding sex. You can see the PSA and one of the billboards below.
