USAID seeks unique solutions to provide reliable health information and support for healthy behaviors in a way that is accessible to adolescents. Through this Addendum, USAID will support further development/refinement, adaptation, testing, introduction, and/or scale up of innovative solutions in multiple countries that will:

  1.  Advance universal and age-appropriate knowledge of puberty, fertility, and sexual health, exploitation, and pregnancy risk.
  2. Demonstrate measureable impact of knowledge on key behaviors (e.g., empowerment,communication with parents and in other relationships, risk awareness/avoidance and/or contraceptive use as appropriate).
