Youth telephone hotlines were established by the Asociación Pro-Bienestar de la Familia de Guatemala (APROFAM) in Guatemala and the Asociación Pro-Bienestar de la Familia Colombiana (PROFAMILIA) in Colombia as a means of providing an anonymous and free point of first contact for adolescents in need of sexual and reproductive health information.
