Number/percent of health workers trained to provide adolescent and youth-friendly services
The percent of program staff specifically trained to work with or provide information, education, or family planning services to adolescents
This indicator is calculated as:
(# of program staff who have received specific training to provide education/ counseling or adolescent health care /Total # of program staff working with adolescents) x 100
Number of program staff working with adolescents, number (of these) who received specific training to provide education/ counseling or adolescent health care.
If targeting and/or linking to inequity, classify trainees by areas served (poor/not poor) and disaggregate by area served.
Program personnel files/records
Working with youth requires perspectives and skills often lacking in standard pre-service training. This indicator measures the extent to which program personnel working with adolescents have received specific training to provide services to adolescents. Services may include outreach, information, education, counseling, referral, and reproductive health services.
This indicator only measures staff exposure to training; it does not measure the quality of the training or the staff competence in working with adolescents as a result of the training. A follow-up indicator could be Number/percent of trainees who have mastered relevant knowledge (found in the Training section of this database).
