Adolescent pregnancy situation in South-East Asia Region
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2015 )
Abstract

Adolescent health programmes in the Member States of the South-East Asia Region of WHO have progressively evolved over the last decade. Adolescent pregnancy has been identified as one of the major public health challenges and has implications for achievement of Millennium Development Goals 4,5 and 6. It has been experienced that nationally representative strategic information related to adolescent sexual and reproductive health including adolescent pregnancy is difficult to obtain. This publication presents prevalence and trends on adolescent pregnancy and related health issues in the form of country factsheets and a regional summary. The data and information has been obtained from the most recent existing sources in the countries including national demographic and health surveys (DHS), reproductive health surveys, multiple indicator cluster surveys (MICS), among others. This information will be useful for various stakeholders in the Member States of the Region in prioritizing and planning their national health actions for prevention and management of adolescent pregnancy and contributing to progress in achievement of MDG4, 5 and 6 as well as progress beyond 2015.

Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Services and Implications for the Provision of Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision: Results of a Systematic Literature Review
Van Lith, Lynn M; Bonnecwe, Collen; Hasen, Nina; Lija, Gissenge; Tobian, Aaron A R; Ncube, Gertrude; Smelyanskaya, Marina; Kasedde, Susan; Seifert-Ahanda, Kim; Mallalieu, Elizabeth C; Waxman, Aliza; Kaufman, Michelle R; Samuelson, Julia L; Njeuhmeli, Emmanuel; Hatzhold, Karin; Marcell, Arik V ( 2016-03-03 )
Abstract

Voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) is a critical HIV prevention tool. Since 2007, sub-Saharan African countries with the highest prevalence of HIV have been mobilizing resources to make VMMC available. While implementers initially targeted adult men, demand has been highest for boys under age 18. It is important to understand how male adolescents can best be served by quality VMMC services.A systematic literature review was performed to synthesize the evidence on best practices in adolescent health service delivery specific to males in sub-Saharan Africa. PubMed, Scopus, and JSTOR databases were searched for literature published between January 1990 and March 2014. The review revealed a general absence of health services addressing the specific needs of male adolescents, resulting in knowledge gaps that could diminish the benefits of VMMC programming for this population. Articles focused specifically on VMMC contained little information on the adolescent subgroup. The review revealed barriers to and gaps in sexual and reproductive health and VMMC service provision to adolescents, including structural factors, imposed feelings of shame, endorsement of traditional gender roles, negative interactions with providers, violations of privacy, fear of pain associated with the VMMC procedure, and a desire for elements of traditional non-medical circumcision methods to be integrated into medical procedures. Factors linked to effective adolescent-focused services included the engagement of parents and the community, an adolescent-friendly service environment, and VMMC counseling messages sufficiently understood by young males.VMMC presents an opportune time for early involvement of male adolescents in HIV prevention and sexual and reproductive health programming. However, more research is needed to determine how to align VMMC services with the unique needs of this population.

Adolescent/Youth Reproductive Mobile Access and Delivery Initiative for Love and Life Outcomes (ARMADILLO) Study: formative protocol for mHealth platform development and piloting
Gonsalves, Lianne; Mangone, Emily R; Agarwal, Smisha; Say, Lale; Plourde, Kate F; L'Engle, Kelly L; Hindin, Michelle J; Tamrat, Tigest ( 2015-08-07 )
Abstract

There is a high unmet need for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information and services among youth (ages 15-24) worldwide (MacQuarrie KLD. Unmet Need for Family Planning among Young Women: Levels and Trends 2014). With the proliferation of mobile technology, and its popularity with this age group, mobile phones offer a novel and accessible platform for a discreet, on-demand service providing SRH information. The Adolescent/Youth Reproductive Mobile Access and Delivery Initiative for Love and Life Outcomes (ARMADILLO) formative study will inform the development of an intervention, which will use the popular channel of SMS (text messages) to deliver SRH information on-demand to youth.Following the development of potential SMS message content in partnership with SRH technical experts and youth, formative research activities will take place over two phases. Phase 1 will use focus group discussions (FGDs) with youth and parents/caregivers to develop and test the appropriateness and acceptability of the SMS messages. Phase 2 will consist of 'peer piloting', where youth participants will complete an SRH outcome-focused pretest, be introduced to the system and then have three weeks to interact with the system and share it with friends. Participants will then return to complete the SRH post-test and participate in an in-depth interview about their own and their peers' opinions and experiences using ARMADILLO.The ARMADILLO formative stage will culminate in the finalization of country-specific ARMADILLO messaging. Reach and impact of ARMADILLO will be measured at later stages. We anticipate that the complete ARMADILLO platform will be scalable, with the potential for national-level adoption.

Adolescents and Long-Acting Reversible Contraception: Lessons from Mexico
Saavedra-Avendano, Biani; Darney, Blair G; Andrade-Romo, Zafiro; Rodriguez, Maria I ( 2016-05-05 )
Abstract

Objectives We describe current use of long acting reversible contraception LARC (tier 1), hormonal (tier 2), barrier and traditional contraceptive methods (tier 3) by adolescent women in Mexico. We test whether knowledge of contraceptive methods is associated with current use of LARC. Methods We used the 1992, 1997, 2006, 2009 and 2014 waves of a nationally representative survey (ENADID). We used information from n = 10,376 (N = 3,635,558) adolescents (15-19 years) who reported ever using any contraceptive method. We used descriptive statistics and logistic regression models to test the association of knowledge of method tiers with use of tier 1 (LARC) versus tier 2, tier 3, and no contraceptive use. Results Over time, LARC use in the overall sample was flat (21 % in 1992, 23 % in 2014; p = 0.130). Among adolescents who have had a pregnancy, LARC use has increased (24 % in 1992 to 37 % in 2014). Among adolescents who did not report a pregnancy, current LARC use has remained low (1 % in 1992 and 2 % in 2014). We found positive association between LARC use and knowledge of tier 1 methods. In the overall sample LARC use is strongly correlated with exposure to marriage compared to use of tier 2 or tier 3 methods. Discussion Among adolescents in Mexico who are currently using modern methods, LARC use is relatively high, but remains primarily tied to having had a pregnancy. Our study highlights the need to expand access to LARC methods outside the post-partum hospital setting.

Adolescents' attitudes toward gender roles and women's empowerment in Oman
Bint Ahmad Jaffer, Y.; Afifi, M. ( 2005 )
Abstract

This study investigated the attitudes of Omani adolescents towards gender roles and women's empowerment in taking household decisions, and the determinants of their positive attitudes. A national representative secondary school-based sample of 1670 boys and 1675 girls completed a self-administrated questionnaire with 2 indices: Adolescents' Attitudes Towards Gender Roles and Adolescents' Attitudes Towards Women's Empowerment. Other questions included demographic data, risk behaviour lifestyle, proxies to mental health and social environments expected to predict attitudes towards gender role. Eight variables predicted higher scores in both indices: sex, age, socioeconomic class, sleep problems, self-esteem, current smoking, history of indulging in violent behaviour and parental relations

Adolescents' responses to an unintended pregnancy in Ghana: A qualitative study
Manu, Abubakar; Amuasi, Susan Ama; Aziato, Lydia; Hindin, Michelle J; Lawerh, Rachel Mahoe; Maya, Ernest Tei; Ankomah, Augustine ( 2016-06-23 )
Abstract

This study sought to investigate the experiences and perceptions of adolescents who have experienced a recent pregnancy and undergone a termination of pregnancy.A vignette-based focus group approach was utilized to have adolescents reflect on scenarios that happen to others during an unwanted pregnancy.The study was conducted in public health facilities in the three major urban areas of Ghana - Accra, Kumasi and Tamale.and data collection procedure: Adolescents, ages 10-19, who had a recent termination of pregnancy were recruited from public health facilities in the 3 sites. Fifteen focus groups were conducted and digitally recorded in English, Twi, Ga and Dagbani. Transcripts were transcribed and translated, and thematic analysis was used for the analysis.Adolescents reported that the characters in the vignettes would feel sadness, depression and regret from an unintended pregnancy and some male partners would "deny" the pregnancy or suggest an abortion. They suggested some parents would "be angry" and "sack" their children for becoming pregnant while others would "support" them. Parents may send the pregnant girl to a distant friend or grandparents until she delivers to avoid shame and gossip. Health professionals may encourage the pregnant girl or insult/gossip about the girl.Adolescent unintended pregnancies in Ghana are met with a range of reactions and these reactions influence the pregnancy choices young women make for continuation or termination of pregnancy.
