The WHO report on Women and Health that was issued in 2009 analyzes how interventions in childhood, through adolescence, during reproductive years and beyond, affect health later in life and across generations. The report also draws attention to the consequences and costs of failing to address health issues at the appropriate points of women’s lives. MLI in collaboration with the WHO is working with Nepal’s Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) to bring attention to the recommendations made in the WHO report, specifically around Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health (ASRH). MLI supported a two-day national policy dialogue on adolescent friendly health services specifically in the context of sexual and reproductive health and HIV in Kathmandu, Nepal from July 27th to the 28th. The workshop was attended by not only policymakers, but also by the adolescents that ASRH decisions affect, including those identified as vulnerable and at-risk.
