Why youth friendly services matter: improving SRHR services for young Ghanaians
"Last Friday I saw an underage girl who came to me for a pregnancy test. It was positive. I could tell that what she wanted was an abortion, but I told her we don’t provide those services at our clinic. Now, after this workshop, having learned about sexual rights, I feel ashamed. I should have referred her to abortion services." These words were shared by a nurse of a health clinic in Tamale, Ghana, during the 5 day training on Youth Friendly Services under the Access, Services, Knowledge (ASK) Programme of the Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRHR) Alliance.
