    Adolescents are often a missed population and this session aimed to address opportunities in this field. From Uganda, Ali described the Young Leaders Thinktank which aimed to interact with policy makers and programs to include the interest of Uganda's younger generation. In Ethiopia, Worku described the Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment Project, providing scholarships for education to reduce early marriage and pregnancy. Bhattacharya described work in India investigating the reasons behind adolescent pregnancy. Silverman shared results of a meta analysis on socioeconomic consequences of teenage pregnancy, finding that causality, differing impacts and the impact on non-socioeconomic consequences must be further investigated.

    Low SES is one factor which disproportionally affects those predisposed to barriers for quality health care. Saha analyzed Self Help Groups (SHG) to find those involved with SHGs were more likely to deliver in an institution, feed newborn colostrums, and know and utilize FP products and services. In Bangladesh, Chokshi described a voucher system enabling those below the poverty line to choose their own provider. Pathak's work in India strengthened ANC clinics and primary maternal care for improved QoC and stronger referral networks. In Pakistan, Mumtaz investigated the effects of privatization of care, leading to further gaps in the ability of the poorest to access care.

    Providing and disseminating knowledge to health care workers is an ongoing task which needs evidence of best practices. Grenier described a new program in Ghana which used a standardization of pre-service training DVD to produce information by live videos, animations, games, PDFs, activities, quizzes and case studies. This initiative is especially focused on family planning and comprehensive abortion services. RHMT in Dar es Salaam used best practices in addressing sessions to update knowledge and skills for obstetric complications for health providers. Partners in Health's presentation (in French) focused on increased training for nurses in Rwanda. In Uganda, Chamberlain focused on policy changes at the national level influenced by the Master of Public Health Leadership program.
