Afluentes will improve the quality of information about reproductive health issues for rural adolescents in Mexico, through training teachers in the public school system and health system providers, focusing in rural and marginalized areas of Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Guerrero. Teachers and health providers will be trained through a distance-learning course specifically designed for the program. Afluentes’ course will contribute to increased coordination between the public school system and youth-friendly services in rural areas thereby promoting improved access to reproductive health services for rural adolescents.
