There was statistically significant relationship between youth knowledge of the available sexual reproductive health service and reproductive health service utilization (X2=0.00, P 0.05) and a strong positive correlation(r=0.5, R2=0.25). 25% of the relationship was explained by linear relationship. A stakeholder integrative and comprehensive approach is required scale up youth utilization of sexual reproductive health services especially facility based ones as friendliness is being improved upon and system barriers removed. This requires baseline survey of youth users of reproductive health services and the quality of services offered. 152 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783668041332
