Investigator: Amanda Mazur, MS
Sponsor: Global Health Sciences Education

Location(s): Ethiopia


More than two decades of research has been directed toward using youth friendly services to improve the delivery of sexual and reproductive health services that are tailored to adolescents, yet there is a lack of consensus on the effectiveness youth-friendly services. This is due in part to the lack of universal acceptance of the type of services that are youth-friendly, undefined indicators and validated instruments to deliver care, track progress, and establish benchmarks.
