Equity and targeting adolescents and youth in health service delivery

Meaghen Quinlan-Davidson and Rafael Cortez

No 115794, Health, Nutrition and Population (HNP) Knowledge Briefs from The World Bank

Abstract: This knowledge brief provides an overview of equity and targeting and the value-add of using an equity-based approach to adolescent and youth health service delivery. For TTLs, policy makers and program/project managers, applying an equity-based approach to adolescent and youth health services begins with understanding why certain groups of young people are vulnerable, and within that, identifying those at greatest risk. It entails analyzing dimensions of inequality (e.g., income, location, gender) and the interaction between those factors using inequality analytics, and undertaking a comprehensive assessment of health systems and services at the sub- national and service delivery levels. It involves ensuring the participation of vulnerable groups of young people.
