The specific purpose of the research study is to generate evidence on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted adolescents’ and young people’s access to and realization of their SRHR. The research analyses current strategies in the delivery of teaching and learning, as well as investigating the care and support services provided to adolescents and youth in the SADC Region. It focuses particularly on the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the SRHR of adolescents and young people and the disruption it has caused to their education, access to basic services and social lives. The information generated will culminate into country-specific findings that can be used by Member States, civil society organizations (CSOs) and other stakeholders to establish appropriate and responsive legal, policy, programmatic and institutional actions for protecting the rights of adolescents and young people.
