The main objective of the project is to assess the extent of unmet need for reproductive health services among adolescents and youth in Central Africa and to illustrate the links between unmet need for reproductive health services and poverty. The study covers nine countries of Central Africa (Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Chad, and Sao Tome) and relies on a complementary combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches. The quantitative approach is based on multilevel model to determine the contribution of each level in the total explanation of the observed differences in the occurrence of unmet needs of reproductive health.
