Socio-cultural context of adolescent sexuality and youth friendly service intervention in West Gojjam Zone, Northwest Ethiopia: a qualitative study

Recognizing that adolescents face barriers in accessing services, may feel embarrassed, face stigma
on sexual matters, or have concerns about judgmental providers, youth-friendly service (YFS) has been introduced to deliver health services that meet the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs of young people. Evidence on the role of YFS in addressing the socio-cultural norms that influence unmarried adolescent SRH behaviour is limited.
