The war in Syria has resulted in an increase in early marriages and teenage pregnancies. Consequently, there is a great need for sexual and reproductive health information and services.
In response, the Amal Initiative (Young Mothers Defying Difficulties) was created to address the needs of adolescent girls in Azmarin and Abin. Amal Initiative is comprised of:
- Adolescent girls advisory committees
- Amal community leaders
- Social discussion groups
- Community advisory teams
- Discussions with health care providers
