LEAD: mChapin

Employing YTH’s youth-centered community consultative process, we worked closely with our GoJoven Public Health Institute (PHI) and Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) partners to conduct a country level assessment and community consultations with youth, Ministries of Education and Health, as well as local providers to draft a national mHealth strategy to reduce unplanned teenage pregnancies in Guatemala. Currently, the strategy is being reviewed for approval by PAHO Guatemala and the Ministry of Health for adoption and implementation.
