The ability of health workers to deliver adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services (AFSRHS) directly impacts the success and efficacy of adolescent focused health programs to a significant extent . Evidence shows that health worker performance in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is often inadequate. To serve the needs of adolescents, health workers need specific competencies to provide evidence-based, non-judgmental and non-discriminatory care, especially in the case of sexual and reproductive health (SRH). This review examines the types and efficacy of 18 interventions to improve health worker performance across several LMICs. The aim was to collect evidence on strategies for improving health worker performance in terms of their competencies, attitudes, and practices in providing AFSRHS. This research can aid program design and health administration in designing and implementing health worker training for providing AFSRHS.
