Calculating AYRH service coverage

It is important to understand the common indicators for calculating service coverage:.

AYRH indicators

  • Proportion of young people using condoms (for age groups 15–19 and 20–24 years)
  • Contraceptive prevalence rate among sexually active young people for age groups 15–19 and 20–24 years (contraceptive prevalence = proportion of adolescents using contraceptives)
  • Prevalence of STIs among female and male young people in age groups 15–19 and 20–24 years (prevalence of STIs = proportion of young people with STIs)
  • Proportion of pregnant women aged 15–19 and 20–24 years old seeking antenatal care (ANC)
  • Proportion of young women aged 15–19 and 20–24 years old delivered at the health facility
  • Proportion of young women who delivered with the assistance of a trained health service provider
  • Proportion of young people referred for HIV counselling and testing
  • Proportion of young women referred for abortion-related services
  • Proportion of young women counselled on sexual abuse.

If we want to calculate ANC coverage among young pregnant women aged 15–19 years we divide the total number of young pregnant women aged 15–19 years who use ANC by the total number of young pregnant women aged 15–19 years in the community and multiply by 100.

ANC coverage among young women 15–19 =

The same can be done for the other indicators.
