  1. Introduction

Adolescent health issues are increasingly being seen as critical areas of action at global, national and community levels. The 1994 International Conference on Population and Development, Cairo; the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing; the 1995 World Summit for Social Development in Copenhagen; and the Global Strategy for Women, Children and Adolescents among others highlighted issues concerning young people. Declarations from these conferences are interrelated and underline the need to address the glaring gap in adolescent health, SRH and rights of young people through focused multi-sectoral approaches. While the majority of young people remain healthy and become productive adults, a large number face different health and development challenges. Many of their decisions, behaviors and relationships impact on their future health and development. This has major implications for individual, as well as public health. Therefore, one of the most important commitments a country can make towards its development is to address issues and concerns of its young people

Adolescent and young people make the largest cohort of Botswanas population, however a large percent of them lack access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH)
