The 'Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health' (2015–2030) has recognized adolescence as a critical life stage with its own unique health challenges. This study aims to help improve the delivery of Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram (RKSK) interventions in 6 high priority states (Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Punjab, and Uttarakhand) in India by highlighting the process and learnings from 4 pilot interventions conducted by USAID’s VRIDDHI project. It discusses the feasibility of scaling up the project and its potential for a larger impact. The pilot interventions provided technical assistance to the national and state governments for scaling up RMNCH + A interventions. Under this project, 4 different models based on the operational strategies and approaches of the RKSK program for strengthening AH service delivery were conceptualized and piloted. This replicable, sustainable, and scalable approach can be applied in other Indian states, making this report an essential read for program implementers and state health officials.
