Nairobi YRDSS: Contraceptive Access, Use, and Demand Report

View All Publications

PMA Agile, a project within PMA, sought a means of measuring contraceptive awareness and use among adolescents and youth as they enter a period of probable sexual activity. Capturing this information from youth clients of health facilities, especially unmarried females, is challenging due to social and familial pressure to hide sexual activity and contraceptive use. Thus, PMA Agile conducted a Youth Respondent-Driven Sample Survey (YRDSS) in Nairobi, Kenya, in collaboration with the International Centre for Reproductive Health-Kenya (ICRHK). The Contraceptive Key Results brief compiles key indicators related to contraceptive access, demand, and use among youth in this study.
