Adolescent and Youth Reproductive Health: 13. Adolescent and Reproductive Health Programme Management

Study Session 13  Adolescent and Youth Reproductive Health Programme Management


In Study Session 1 you learned that young people aged 10–24 years old make up about one third of the Ethiopian population and are faced with many reproductive health problems such as unwanted pregnancy, abortions, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV which progresses to AIDS. In the preceding sessions you have learned what should be done to help young people have good sexual and reproductive health. You have also learned that the Government of Ethiopia is committed to addressing the reproductive health problems of young people in Ethiopia. It is a reflection of the government’s commitment to AYRH that this Module is included in your study. The reproductive health (RH) problems of young people are mainly addressed through AYRH programmes that are implemented at community level. In this session you will learn how to plan, implement and monitor AYRH services and programmes in your community.
