Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed and has an impact on all aspects, including adolescent reproductive health services. Adolescents face a variety of reproductive health risks that, if not addressed properly, can have long-term consequences. This review aims to determine the implementation of adolescent reproductive health services during the Covid-19 pandemic. Scoping review employed databases such as PubMed, Proquest, Science Direct, and Wiley Online Library to adapt the Arksey and O'Malley frameworks. There were 8 articles out of 550 which were selected based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. The Mixed Method Appraisal Tool (MMAT)was used to evaluate the articles in this scoping review. The results of the review showed changes in reproductive health services during the COVID-19 pandemic. As for the obstacles experienced by adolescents in accessing reproductive health services before the pandemic, there were barriers that came from the individual itself, socio-culture and society, in this case it is necessary to carry out several strategies related to the provision of reproductive health services during the Covid-19 pandemic both in terms of technology and changes in government regulations.
