The Program

To create a program in which adolescents and health care providers could jointly work to improve their communication, the National Institute for Reproductive Health’s Adolescent Health Care Communication Program (AHCCP) created two projects designed and led by adolescents:

Both practices were preconceived to put adolescents in the driver’s seat, as workshop facilitators and standardized patients.Through these two projects, providers of adolescent health care gain the opportunity to interface directly with their target population, and benefit from the insight and advice that trained teens can offer. In addition teens learn how to access better health care.
