Responding to adolescents’ educational needs in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) is central to their sexual health and achieved through school-based comprehensive sexuality education (CSE).
Exposure to school violence has proven to be detrimental to human capital formation, but there is limited rigorous evidence about how to tackle this pervasive issue.
In order to better address SRHR care access needs for young women and adolescent girls in humanitarian settings, greater insight is required into the needs and experiences of this population.
The data presented here has been collected by: demographic and health surveys; education management and information systems; and UNAIDS, UNFPA, UNESCO Institute for Statistics and WHO surveys. These are national, official and country-validated data collected between 2010 and 2019.
Menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) is essential to the well-being and empowerment of women and adolescent girls.
The Centre for Social Research (CSR), University of Malawi, and the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) implemented a mixed-methods study in Blantyre, Malawi, to understand how early and unintended pregnancy culminates in the social exclusion of adolescent mothers.
Children in sub-Saharan African countries face higher exposure to gender-based violence (GBV) compared to their counterparts in other world regions (United Nations Children’s Fund [UNICEF], 2014). When GBV occurs in schools, it severely endangers access to education.
The convergence of young people’s increased access globally to smartphones and the Internet and their continued unmet needs around comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) have prompted many new sexuality education initiatives delivered through digital tools and platforms.
The overarching aim of this project is to generate rigorous evidence that provides insights on how policymakers and program implementers can support adolescent mothers to continue their education, as well as improve their sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and mental health.
Les grossesses chez les adolescentes constituent un problème mondial. Les adolescentes concernées, qu’elles soient enceintes ou mères, sont susceptibles d’avoir des problèmes liés à la santé, au bien-être socio-économique et à la poursuite de leur scolarité.
