Age- and Life-Stage Tailored Sexual and Reproductive Health Approaches
Our programs target adolescents in critical periods of their lives: during young adolescence and as first-time and young parents. Very young adolescents (VYAs; ages 10-14), are a group often neglected in global health programs.
Our programs fill a critical information and service gap and equip young adolescents with the ability to navigate challenges and opportunities during puberty. We work with first-time and young parents, and their families and communities, to improve their health and well-being.
All of our life-stage programs foster the development of positive social and gender norms, build linkages to health systems, and increase access to reproductive, maternal, and newborn health services.
