Abstract

Access to information about contraception in pharmacies and clinics is high, but efforts must be made to provide 100% coverage to adolescents. The quality of contraception services in pharmacies and clinics is poor and nonequitable, favoring older and nonindigenous adolescents. Clinics and pharmacies must strive to comply with international AFS guidelines.
