Integrating Past Research on Related Abstinence and Safer-Sex Interventions

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2010;164(7):679-681. doi:10.1001/archpediatrics.2010.120

A recent article by Jemmott et al1 reported notable findings regarding the success of an abstinence-only intervention in delaying sex at 24-month follow-up among African American early adolescents. As researchers and practitioners discuss the implications of these new findings, it is important, as Rivara and Joffe2 point out, to integrate these results with those from past studies to inform public policy regarding sex education.
