Adolescents in Nevada are disproportionately affected by sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and the state relies heavily on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) data to guide sexual health programs and policies. Five years ago, a collaborative relationship between the Nevada State Department of Education, the Nevada State Division of Public and Behavioral Health, and the University of Nevada, Reno School of Community Health Sciences was established to implement the YRBS. CDC-funding from RFA-PS13-18 was augmented by state funding and in-kind support to all for the collection of YRBS data in all high schools, middle schools, and tribal schools and Profiles data in all high schools and middle schools. Weighted YRBS and Profiles data were obtained every survey year and results were broadly disseminated to school districts, community coalitions, planning groups, and non-profit agencies throughout the state. In response to CDC-RFA-PS18-1807, the Nevada State Department of Education has requested that the Bona Fide Agent for the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (University of Nevada, Reno School of Community Health Sciences) apply for Component 1, School-Based Surveillance, on their behalf. Full funding through CDC-RFA-PS18-1807 Component 1 will allow us to strengthen our collaboration to obtain weighted YRBS (odd years) and Profiles (even years) data for Nevada and disseminate the results through a variety of modalities. At the end of the five year grant period, this will lead to increased understanding of youth risk behaviors and school health policies and practices by education and public health agencies.
