ABSTRACT

Strengthening health service delivery as a building block to the health system is key to the attainment of the health-related Sustainable Development Goals, which include the delivery of effective interventions to reduce adolescent and youth mortality as well as the burden of HIV/AIDS. The Government of Kenya and its partners have over the years recommended certain standards through Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Policies and guidelines, with youth friendly centres continuing to be used as one model in providing reproductive health services to the youth. Despite these guidelines, the effectiveness of the centers has been acknowledged to depend on many factors which include institutional, service provider, policy and youths’perceptions.
