Abstract

Health care facilities can play an important role for adolescents in preventing health problems, in promoting sexual and reproductive health and in shaping positive behaviours. Extensive research has established that South African public health facilities are failing to provide adolescent-friendly health services. The National Adolescent-Friendly Clinic Initiative (NAFCI)is on accreditation programme designed to improve the quality of adolescent health services at the primary care level and strengthen the public sector's ability to respond to adolescent health needs. The key objectives of the programme ore to make health services more accessible and acceptable to adolescents establish national standards and criteria for adolescent health care in clinics throughout the country and build the capacity of health care workers to provide quality services. One of the indicators for success ofNAFCI will be increased utilisation of public sector clinics by adolescents. NAFCI is an integral component of the largest, most innovative, public health programme ever launched in South Africa, loveLife. Achieving NAFCI accreditation involves clinic self-appraisals, quality improvements, externalassessments and a ward of achievement stars. NAFCI is currently being piloted in ten government clinics in South Africa.
