The goal of A2H is to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) and family planning knowledge, while increasing access to and use of related health services.
A2H aims to reach young adolescents between the ages of 10–14 and adolescents between the ages of 15–19 with multi-level interventions that strengthen the engagement of key community gatekeepers, while increasing the demand for quality ASRH and family planning services at the health center and provider level.
The project also encourages delayed marriage, family planning, and the strengthening of adolescent-friendly ASRH in government, non-government, and private sector health facilities.
