India had committed itself to initiate and improve adolescent-specific health programs on various international platforms. To this end, the government has introduced several health schemes for adolescents. These include the Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health (ARSH) policy and the Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram (RKSK ), a National Program on Adolescent Health, started in 2014. This report provides an assessment of the current initiatives and highlights their limitations in areas such as communication, reach, and measurement of efficacy. It also provides recommendations for scaling up best practices and suggests policy changes that will provide better reach and scale of these programs. The information in this report can aid program implementers and policymakers to increase reach and access to healthcare services for the country’s 250 million adolescents.
