Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health

Save the Children’s Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR) programs work with adolescents, families, schools, communities, and health systems to increase the availability, accessibility, and quality of sexual and reproductive health information and services across the adolescent life span. Together with ministries of Education, Health and Social Affairs, Save the Children strengthens the capacity of schools, health service providers, and community organizations to provide comprehensive sexuality education to adolescents and link them to youth-friendly SRH services. This enables adolescents to be better informed about their sexual and reproductive health and rights and thus able to make and act upon informed decisions about their reproduction and sexual activity free from discrimination, coercion, violence, and infection. Save the Children and its partners simultaneously work with communities to become supportive of ASRHR. The organization also implements ASRHR programs in humanitarian settings including acute, protracted crises as well as natural disasters. As a member of the Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises, we work with various International NGOs to provide global technical assistance and advocate for ASRHR services in humanitarian situations. In these crises, Save the Children often provides direct SRH services and works with health providers and youth to increase access and reduce related mortality and morbidity for this vulnerable group.
