Youth-led Social Accountability in SRHR I&E


Short summary

Youth-led social accountability interventions empower young people to voice their opinions and hold providers and other duty bearers accountable for delivering on their commitments towards, for example, SRHR services, information and education. Score cards, mystery clients and interface meetings with key stakeholders are examples of key elements of such interventions.  CS on this topic will support learning trajectory participants in the design, implementation and documentation of youth-led social accountability interventions.
