This concept note examines existing standards, guidelines and tools for youth friendly health services (YFHS) with a view to assessing the degree of consensus with regard to the features deemed essential in order for a health service to qualify as youth friendly. In addition, the note reviews instruments used to guide the development of youth friendly health services, identifies apparent gaps in current tools and services. Following the analysis of instruments and standards, an intervention logic is provided for the design, delivery and assessment of YFH services.
