Tools to assess Girl-friendly schools, Comprehensive Sexuality Education and Youth-friendly Health Services

The University of Amsterdam (UvA) in partnership with the Her Choice Programme has developed tools in English and French to assess Girl-friendly Schools (GFS), Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) and Youth-Friendly Health Services (YFHS).The development and evaluation of the use of the tools has been funded through two small grants of Share-Net International. The tools have been implemented in the Her Choice programme countries in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Comprehensive Sexuality Education tool: This tool allows for scoring a CSE intervention along different dimensions with a view to assessing the degree to which an intervention can be considered ‘comprehensive.‘

Girl-friendly school tool: This tool scores different dimensions of schools to assess whether or not they can be considered girl friendly.

Youth-friendly Health Services tool: This tool scores different dimensions of health services to assess whether they can be considered youth friendly.
