A synthesis of UNICEF’s Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office Evidence-to-Action research partnership with the University of Oxford and University of Cape Town from 2018 to 2023 was undertaken to identify common themes and generate new insights on: What common factors put adolescents, inclu
Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) has recently become salient, but adolescent sexual reproductive health and rights (ASRHR) challenges are still a global health problem.
The African Union (AU) Continental Strategy on Education for Health and Well-being of Young People aims to enhance the physical, mental, and reproductive health of young people while contributing to the achievement of education goals.
Adolescents who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) are often left out of the health and social programming. This is a disproportionately large group in sub-Saharan Africa that has experienced extreme marginalisation during the pandemic.
Among Zambia’s key health and development challenges, are high rates of EUP, and disproportionately higher HIV rates among AGYW. Pregnancy among girls in school poses a challenge. CSE programmes are part of available armamentarium to improve knowledge on the risks.
In Madagascar and many other contexts, decisions made at the higher level about family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) are often disconnected from knowledge and experience held at the local level – particularly when it comes to issues affecting youth.
Ethiopia has made significant improvements in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) over the past two decades through key policy initiatives and strategic objectives in support of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
This report presents the findings and recommendations of a baseline study conducted for Our Rights, Our Lives, and Our Future (O3 plus), a UNESCO-SIDA supported project which is being implemented at the university level in Tanzania from 2021 to 2022.
The purpose of this assessment was to collect comprehensive information on youth-friendly services (YFS) in line with existing guidelines and standards and provide recommendations for health facilities in higher and tertiary education institutions (HTEI) to be fully functional.
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.
