The extent to which the design of available reproductive health interventions fit the reproductive health needs of adolescents living in urban poor settings of Kisenyi, Kampala, Uganda

Abstract
The rate at which informal urban settlements (slums) are developing in Low and Middle Income. Countries (LMICs) like Uganda is high. With this, comes the growing intersection between urbanization and the reproductive health of key populations. Currently, a number of interventions are being implemented to improve the Reproductive Health (RH) of adolescents in Kisenyi, the largest informal urban settlement in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. Despite these efforts, adolescent RH indicators have persistently remained poor in Kisenyi. This could be indicative of a gap between the provided and needed adolescent RH interventions. We assessed the fit between the available interventions and the RH needs of adolescents living in Kisenyi.
