New Publication on Adolescent Reproductive Health

Greetings and apologies for any cross-postings!

Family Health International (FHI) is pleased to announce the addition
of a new publication on adolescent reproductive health to our Web
site entitled, "Meeting the Needs of Young Clients: A Guide to Pro-
viding Reproductive Health Services to Adolescents."

The 108-page handbook, online as full text at:
has been developed to help service providers and health workers
strengthen the reproductive health care and services offered to young
women and men. It focuses primarily on preventing unplanned pregnan-
cies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV/AIDS.
It also contains information on counselling young people about repro-
ductive health, counselling victims of sexual violence or coercion,
creating youth-friendly programs and creating a referral network.

Some of the tools it offers are role plays on abstinence and condom
negotiation, in-depth charts on contraceptive methods for adolescents
and a chart on key issues to discuss regarding STIs.

Print copies of the guide are available from FHI at no cost to devel-
oping country service delivery programs by contacting

US organizations may access it over the Internet, or order copies for
US$ 20 each (check payable to Family Health International in US funds
drawn on a US bank) from:
