The Higher Population Council and Share-Net Jordan have implemented National Standards for Youth-friendly Sexual and Reproductive Health and Reproductive Services, along with the Institute for Family Health/King Hussein Foundation. The organisations cooperate to apply standards in health Centers in East Amman, Al-Qwaismah, Zarqa, Al-Karak and Sweileh, which are part of the institute for Family Health. The success of the standards will be evaluated through activities carried out in the centres, through recognising the importance of teams building a pioneering national model that provides youth-friendly Sexual and Reproductive Health services in-line with the national standards, and will be used as an example to be emulated by further institutes institutions. Based on this model, the parties involved have signed a cooperation agreement to apply standards.
