In Celebration of International Youth Day: Four Resources Guiding and Informing Our Work with Adolescents and Youth

Amalia, activist in Mozambique

Simply put—Pathfinder is dedicated to young people. We have worked with adolescents and youth for decades because we believe that their rights, their health, and their wellbeing matters.

There are more than 1.8 billion people aged 10-24 in the world today and more than half of the world's population is under the age of 25. This unique and powerful group of young people has a right to sexual and reproductive health, but most of them still face tremendous challenges in accessing that care. That's why our youth work, much like the rest of our work, is all about breaking down barriers: barriers to contraception in Mozambique, barriers to HIV testing and treatment in South Africa, barriers to information about sexual and reproductive health in India, and barriers to gender equality in Uganda.

It's often said that young people are the future. At Pathfinder, we believe young people are "the now."

This International Youth Day, we celebrate and applaud the strength, boldness, and dynamism of the youth we work with in more than 20 countries around the world.

Below, we have shared a handful of tools and studies that reflect Pathfinder's approach and our commitment to building the evidence base around working with adolescents and youth. From a study that helps us better understand the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents living with HIV to tools like cue cards that help providers counsel adolescents on contraception, these are the kinds of resources that inform, frame, and guide our work in the field.

You can also search our Publications and Tools library for additional resources on adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health.

Developed by Pathfinder staff, these contraception cue cards are used by providers in the field to counsel on different contraceptive methods, their use, and effectiveness. Using the cue cards, providers can help answer common questions about advantages and disadvantages of different methods, allowing adolescents to choose the option that works best for them.

GREAT toolkit

GREAT Scalable Toolkit (Multiple Languages)


The GREAT Toolkit, collaboratively developed with our partners on the Gender Roles Equality and Transformations project in Uganda, is used by adolescents to dynamically dialogue on gender norms, reproductive health, and gender-based violence. The toolkit includes flipbooks, activity cards, a radio discussion guide, and a community game.

With increased access to HIV treatment throughout Africa, a generation of HIV positive children is now transitioning to adulthood while living with a chronic condition that can amplify the anxieties of adolescence. This qualitative study explores how adolescents living with HIV in Tanzania experience their nascent sexuality and the challenges they face.

This study found that youth postabortion clients were less likely to receive a contraception method in eight facilities in Kenya’s Central and Nairobi provinces. The article shows that additional efforts are needed to bolster the contraceptive services that young postabortion care clients receive. For more information about youth-friendly postabortion care, check out the Postabortion Care Consortium website.
