Assessment of Adolescents’ Clinic Use and Reproductive Health Needs in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire

Despite high pregnancy rates and levels of vulnerability to sexually transmitted infections, including HIV & AIDS, contraceptive use among youth in West Africa remains low. In the most recent demographic and health surveys in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Mali, Togo, Côte d’Ivoire, and Senegal, only 1-6 percent of sexually active women 15-24 years of age reported using a modern contraceptive method. The FOCUS on Young Adults program, in collaboration with the West and Central Africa Family Health Project, undertook a study to identify existing barriers limiting adolescents’ use of services in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, and to determine ways to improve existing services to better meet adolescent reproductive health needs.
