How Might We?

Questions to get you thinking

There are many ways to use technology to affect the behavior of teens so that pregnancy is avoided. And the end user of the technology intervention may not be teens at all, but people who may have an impact on their behavioral outcomes.

  • How might we increase access to underserved populations?
  • How might we use big data to provide actionable insights to the field?

  • How might we work with marketing technologies to get the right message to the right person at the right time—especially underserved audiences?
  • How might we involve librarians and museums in influencing the behavior of teens?
  • How might we use technology to expand and re-think healthcare settings and improve customer experience?

  • How might we create more sharing of ideas and collaboration among people in the field?
  • How might we help people who qualify for free birth control understand that they do qualify, and how to act on it?
  • How might we increase access to information about healthy relationships and birth control for people who influence teens, but in non-traditional settings?
  • How might we use technology to enhance physical environments (healthcare locations, libraries, homes, work, etc.) so that they are supportive of learning that leads to teen pregnancy prevention?
  • How might we use technology to create networks (of people) that support decision-making that, in turn, supports reproductive health?
