This research brief presents key findings of a scoping review of past and present social and behavior change (SBC) programs targeting male and female out-of-school youth (OSY) ages 15 to 19 in the Philippines, with particular focus on four priority reprodutcive health (RH) behaviors: delay of sexual debut, use of modern contraceptive methods to prevent teenage pregnancy, care-seeking in first trimester of pregnancy, and birth spacing of 3 to 5 years to prevent short birth intervals. This scoping review is part of a broader research study by Breakthrough RESEARCH with financial support from USAID Philippines.
