Health workers for teens

The programme is about Health Workers looking at their involvement in dealing with teenage clients. It is also about examining the quality of care and services provided to adolescent and youth clients, whether they need help with family planning (FP), testing for HIV or STIs, pregnancy or post-delivery care or any other sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services.
