Adolescent Mothers against All Odds (AMAL) Initiative

CARE’s Adolescent Mothers against All Odds (AMAL) Initiative seeks to address the needs of pregnant adolescents and first-time mothers in crisis-affected settings, while simultaneously addressing community consciousness and engagement around gender, power, and social norms. The AMAL initiative includes three main components (i.e., adolescent-centered components, community- centered components and provider-centered components). This toolkit provides program implementers with guidance, session-based curricula, complementary resources, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning tools for the aforementioned three components.

Factors impacting use of health services by first time/young parents: A formative research toolkit

“There is a clear need for interventions to connect pregnant and parenting adolescents and young people to health services, ensuring uptake of maternal and newborn care (MNC) and antenatal care (ANC) services as well as continued use of family planning for healthy timing of a subsequent pregnancy.

Given that FT/YPs’ use of health service is determined by factors within and beyond their control, it is important to use a socio-ecological model to design research and interventions. This toolkit is designed to simplify the process of designing research to include the perspectives of first-time mothers and fathers, their families and communities, and the health system.”
