  •  Parental consent seems not to pose a barrier for the access of FP information and services by adolescents.
  •  Possible reasons:
  1. The low level of knowledge and experience of the RPRH Law and the parental consent provision by parents and children.
  2. Low utilization of health services by adolescents (before pregnancy).
  3. Uneven implementation of the provision in health facilities.
