It is difficult to counsel teenagers, seeking answers to their reproductive and sexual health queries in the middle of a chaotic and hobnobbed room, full of patients suffering from other diseases. The poor location of these clinics and presence of other patients, makes counselling sessions impossible.
Two adolescent clinics under Adolescent Health and Reproductive Health (ARSH) scheme were opened at Government Women Hospital (GWH) and SPG Divisional Hospital. However, lack of privacy in these clinics and improper infrastructure makes them a less visited place for youngsters seeking counselling regarding reproductive health.
