The Malian population is young, with 65% under 25 years. Similarly, 60% had their first pregnancy by 19 years. 15% of maternal deaths occur in adolescents. According to the 2012 DHS, unmet need for FP is high among young unmarried women. In Mali, the objective of FP 2020 is to increase the rate of modern contraceptive prevalence from 10% to 15% between 2012 and 2018. PSI/Mali in collaboration with the Health Division of the Ministry of Reproductive Health tested a model of youth-friendly services. A Grin is usually a group of young friends having a place to chat and share common values together. This is a widespread practice in Mali.
