Young people have unique health needs and a huge potential for healthy personal development. However, communities, health providers, facilities, and young people themselves are often unaware of how best to promote health among adolescents and youth. This updated Youth-friendly Health Services Training Manual, developed by the Ministry of Health in Malawi with support from HP+, aims to improve the way service providers respond to the needs of young people and improve providers’ ability to communicate with other stakeholders to improve young people’s health.
The facilitators guide and participants handbook are intended to be used for training health care providers and other professionals (such as psychologists, social workers, teachers, youth development workers, community-based distribution agents, and youth peer educators), as well as young people themselves on the special characteristics of young people and the appropriate approaches to address priority health needs.
