Adolescent Reproductive & Sexual Health (ARSH)

      Objective is to contribute to RCH II goals of reduction of Infant Mortality Rate (IMR), Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR)
   and Total Fertility Rate (TFR) by:

   Reducing teenage pregnancies
   Meeting unmet contraceptive needs
   Reducing number of teenage maternal deaths
   Reducing incidence of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
   Reducing proportion of HIV positive in 10-19 years of age.

The approach proposed in the strategy is based on a continuum of care for adolescent health and development needs, including the provision of information, commodities and services at the community level, with mapped out referral linkages through the three-tier public health system. Most importantly, it proposes a convergent model of service delivery that will engage adolescents and field service providers
