Annual Report 2016-2017 > Adolescent Sexual Health

Adolescent sexual health
  • Our research affirmed that we can further reduce pregnancy among adolescents through improved education, health services, and community engagement.
  • We found that living in a household with another HIV-positive member was the only factor that improved HIV-positive adolescents’ ongoing treatment in Kenya and Uganda.

With a team of adolescent reproductive health experts, we reviewed data on teen use of contraception and found that they--more than other groups--will benefit from over-the-counter access to oral contraceptive pills.
