Youth friendly services represent an approach, which brings together the qualities that young people demand, with the high standards that have to be achieved in the best public services. Such services are accessible, acceptable and appropriate for young people. They are in the right place, at the right time, at the right price (free where necessary) and delivered in the right style to be acceptable to young people. They are equitable because they are inclusive and do not discriminate against any sector of this young clientele on grounds of gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, social status or any other reason. Indeed, they reach out to those who are most vulnerable and those who lack services. Young People as an Age Group 1 Adolescents: 10 – 19 years 2 Youth: 15-25 years 3 Young people: 10 – 24 years The meaning of "adolescence" -the period between 10 and 19 years of age- is understood in different ways in different cultural contexts. Almost universally, however, it is seen as a time of transition between childhood and adulthood, a period of physical and psychological changes associated with puberty, and of preparation for the roles, privileges and responsibilities of adulthood. The nature and experience of adolescence vary tremendously by sex, marital status, class, region and cultural context. As a group, however, adolescents are generally recognized to have sexual and reproductive health needs that differ from those of adults, and which are still poorly understood in much of the world. Adolescents and young people are at the beginning of their sexual and reproductive lives and they are also the next generation of parents. How they undergo preparation for this journey has tremendous implications for their own lives as well as for national reproductive health outcomes, including fertility, safe motherhood and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), particularly HIV/AIDS
