In January 2012, Governor Phil Bryant in his first State of the State address issued a directive to the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) to develop a plan within 30 days for preventing and reducing teen pregnancy in Mississippi. In response to this directive, the Healthy Teens for a Better Mississippi Program was established. The program will promote the use of multiple strategies, e.g., abstinence and abstinence-plus sex education and youth development programs, coalition building, media outreach, to prevent and reduce teen pregnancy.
