Family Planning and Pregnancy Counselling Projects for Young People


This book gives the full results of an independent evaluation of projects initiated and funded by the Department of Health in three health districts, with the aim of meeting the family planning needs of young people under 25. It highlights the problems encountered by those setting up services for young people, and gives a detailed account of how the three projects attempted to meet the aims of the DoH. It provides an in-depth examination of the strengths and weaknesses of the projects as seen through the eyes of professionals working with young people as well as the project team members, their managers and advisers, and the young people themselves.
