A Standards-driven approach to improve the quality of health-care services for adolescents

A Standards-driven approach to improve the quality of health-care services for adolescents

Global initiatives are urging countries to prioritize quality as a way of reinforcing human rights-based approaches to health (iERG, 2013). Yet, evidence from both high- and middle-low income countries shows that services for adolescents are highly fragmented, poorly coordinated and uneven in quality (WHO, 2014). Evidence suggests that adolescents experience many barriers to health care (WHO/UNAIDS, 2015).
