Adolescents and young people experience rapid physical, cognitive and psychosocial growth. This affects how they feel, think, make decisions, and interact with the world around them. 

Despite being thought of as a healthy stage of life, there is significant death, illness and injury in the adolescent years. Much of this is preventable or treatable. During this stage, adolescents develop patterns of behaviour related to diet, physical activity, trying new things and sexual activity – which sometimes can protect their health and or put their health at risk now and in the future.

To grow and develop in good health, adolescents and the young generation need the right information, including age-appropriate comprehensive sexual Reproductive Health education, opportunities to develop life skills; health services seeking behaviour that are acceptable, equitable, appropriate and effective;  safe and supportive environments. 

“The use of Human Centre Design approach that is Giving them  opportunities to meaningfully participate in the design and delivery of interventions to improve and maintain their health make it full sounding of Adolescent  Youth Friendly Services”
