Community Pathways to Improved Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health: A Conceptual Framework and Suggested Outcome Indicators

This pathways model and set of indicators was developed by the Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) to more explicitly articulate the multiple roles that communities can play in addressing adolescent sexual and reproductive health issues.

The framework attempts to capture the dynamic nature of community involvement i.e., that collective action is likely to improve the capacity of a community to address other pressing issues. As individuals, institutions and social-support networks become more skilled in addressing community concerns, they are increasingly able to take on new issues. This, in turn, further improves community capacity.
