1. Introduction to the manual
Are you developing and implementing sexual and reproductive health and rights programmes for young people? Do you want guidance to review your programmes in line with a rights-based and gender-transformative approach and identify areas for improvement? Do you seek support to meaningfully involve young people in your programmes?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, this Essential Packages Manual could be very helpful for you.
The Essential Packages Manual is a comprehensive guide for successful sexual and reproductive health and rights programmes for young people. It is a starting point for managers, programme officers, monitoring and evaluation staff and others to critically review their programmes against proven standards of good practice, to identify gaps and areas where they could improve to better serve young people, and to learn more about a holistic approach to programming that places young people at the centre. Those working in one programmatic area may wish to learn a little more about another area, and this Manual provides an introduction to a range of interventions across programmatic areas.
As a broad, over-arching guide, the Essential Packages Manual does not provide detailed, step-by-step guidance on how to improve programming. Further resources are identified throughout the manual for those who wish to delve further into particular areas, and for those who seek more specific, detailed guidance on programme design, implementation and evaluation. A full list of recommended resources can be found at the end of the document.
