The Very Young Adolescent Sexual & Reproductive Health and Gender Program Design Guide provides simple and actionable guidance for programs with very young adolescents (VYA) across different contexts. A resource for nongovernmental organizations, government ministries, donors, and other health and gender practitioners, this guide offers key evidence-based considerations for programmers to explore before program design, as well as step-by-step guidance for the selection of target groups, priority outcomes and intervention content and activities. It also provides reflections on the special challenges of monitoring and evaluating VYA programs. The guide can be used by practitioners creating stand-alone VYA programs or by those desiring to integrate VYA-focused tools, strategies or activities into existing programs.
