A Review of Control-Comparison Interventions on Girls and Health in Low and Middle-Income Countries
Much attention has been devoted in recent years to the adolescent girl in low- and middle-income countries. The large number of related interventions has likely been beneficial to girls, but too little evidence is available on impact. The purpose of this paper is to assess progress made since the release of the influential papers Girls Count (Levine et al., 2008) and Start with a Girl (Temin & Levine, 2009). Through a structured in-depth literature review we shed light on what has been learned and what research and program evidence is still needed.
