Young people in Uganda have significant unmet sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs. This is particularly the case for young people from key populations. The situation for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people is also difficult. They face serious challenges in accessing SRHR services at a time in their lives when accessing these services is critical. One of the strategies Marie Stopes International Uganda (MSIU) used in Link Up to address these challenge was a voucher scheme for young people. This case study describes the organisation’s experiences in setting up and implementing the scheme, which ran between March 2014 and March 2015. It also documents initial lessons learnt and future recommendations.
