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:
http://www.fhi.org/en/fp/fpother/adolhand/adolchap1.html
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
mailto:publications@fhi.org

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:
