National Study on Nutrition, Sexual and Reproductive Health of Marginalized Adolescent Girls

The national research  study documented an over-arching view of marginalized adolescent girls’ nutrition, reproductive health and other associated issues in Pakistan; and its influence on a broad group of SDGs. The results highlighted the deterring gender norms in communities, hindering the access of adolescent girls to health and their negative pregnancy experiences.  The final report included key recommendations by stakeholders to enhance access to appropriate health services for adolescent girls; a comprehensive curriculum on sexual and reproductive health devised for inclusion in school syllabus at secondary level.
