The Sexual and Reproductive Health of Young Adolescents in Developing Countries: Reviewing The Evidence, Identifying Research Gaps, and Moving the Agenda

The overall objective of the WHO technical consultation was to identify and recommend to WHO (particularly the Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction) a set of policy-relevant themes, methodologies and potential country settings for a programme of collaborative research on the sexual and reproductive health and rights of younger adolescents. The specific objectives were to (a) identify key problems, needs and proposed interventions; (b) determine which types of data would be most useful for planning and programme purposes in developing countries; and (c) propose methodologies for obtaining these data.
