Abstract:

The Government of Malawi recognizes that the health of young people is a component of public health, which is of concern in this country. However, lives of most young people continue to be threatened by a number of factors such as sexually transmitted infections including HIV and AIDS, teenage pregnancies, unsafe abortion complications, nutrition inadequacies, alcohol and drug abuse and mental health problems. This contributes significantly to the high mortality and morbidity rates in Malawi. The Ministry of Health through the Directorate of Reproductive Health and partners initiated the program evaluation of youth-friendly health services to assess the extent to which young people access the health services they need at various levels of care. The findings and recommendations from the evaluation stressed the need to have a robust adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health strategy.

This strategy, therefore, aims at giving direction and guidance to the implementation of SRH services for
all young people countrywide, so as to achieve the highest possible level of quality integrated services.
