SERVICES AND PROGRAMS

Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Services

  • FLEP targets both out-of-school and in-school young people (10-24 years), with greater emphasis on reaching out-of-school youth who are most at risk due to their limited access to adolescent sexual reproductive health information and services. Youth peer educators (YPEs) engage young people and communities in dialogue and discussion about the health and social problems associated with adolescent pregnancy and illegal abortion, in order to create a supportive environment for behaviour change among adolescents to discourage early sex and marriage, to use contraception when sex is initiated, and seek health services when complications arise. There are youth clubs that enhance sustainable provision of adolescent health information and services at community level. Youth clubs are equipped with IEC/BCC and life skills messages for young people.
