This report presents the findings from reviews identified since December 2001 to update the first evidence briefing relating to teenage pregnancy and parenthood published in 2003 (Swann et al 2003). Following on from the comprehensive work carried out by the Social Exclusion Unit (SEU 1999) the evidence briefing provided an overview of the effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing unintended teenage pregnancy and supporting teenage parents, drawn from review-level evidence. It identified the need for more good quality studies and reviews, especially within the UK to provide clear messages for policy and practice.
