Young people in Uganda face challenges in achieving their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), such as lack of information, limited access to services, teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
Reeuwijk, Miranda van
Many SRHR programmes are delivered through a sexual risk perspective – which means emphasising the negative consequences of sexual activity, such as unintended pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections.
Positive aspects of sexuality remain understudied among young people globally, and consensus is lacking on how to conceptualise different aspects of healthy adolescent sexuality development in order to guide programmes, research, and policy.
The literature review explores young people’s perspectives on sexual wellbeing and consent by looking at relevant scientific and grey literature.
