Chapter 6: ASRH Services & Interventions

The next stop in the Toolkit’s roadmap discusses adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) services and interventions. This chapter provides guidance on how to implement the priority ASRH activities outlined in Chapter 4—as well as additional ASRH services and interventions—with a holistic lens that addresses different levels of influence along the Social-Ecological Model. This chapter aligns with the Inter-Agency Field Manual on Reproductive Health in Humanitarian Settings (IAFM), guiding sexual and reproductive health (SRH) managers and humanitarian practitioners on how to train and build the capacity of staff, deliver facility-based services, foster community-based services, utilize outreach platforms, and ensure multi-sectoral linkages and referral pathways.

Learning Objectives

After reading this chapter, readers should be able to:

  • Explain how a health facility’s characteristics impact adolescents’ decision to seek and receive SRH services
  • Highlight the importance of training health and non-health staff on ASRH services and how to work with adolescents
  • Identify proven approaches, tools, and platforms for service providers, community health workers (CHWs), and other staff to provide SRH services to adolescents at the health facility and within the community
  • Provide examples of how to integrate SRH services for adolescents into other clusters/sectors (outside of the health sector)
  • Describe how to make referrals across humanitarian sectors for adolescent clients
