Emerging global guidance suggests that, to reach youth in a sustainable and scalable way, youth-friendly services must be mainstreamed in the community and health systems. However, there is little evidence from project implementation about how to integrate youth-friendly services on a large scale. This technical brief explores how youth-friendly services were mainstreamed within public sector facilities and communities supported by Pathfinder International’s cross-country project, MAIS Qualidade, Acesso, Saúde in Mozambique, and Chaguo la Maisha in Tanzania (January 2015 to December 2017), and offers recommendations for future youth-friendly services programming.
