We focus in particular on early adolescents (10-14 years) and those from marginalized communities, and the magnitude and impact of adverse SRH events on adolescent health and wellbeing. We aim to clarify the contexts for comprehensive sexuality education, including SRHR/FP counseling for adolescents. Focus Areas Family Planning, Fertility and Population Growth Population Growth and Environmental Change Population, Reproductive Health and Poverty OVERVIEW The Center’s largest and most diverse portfolio focuses on issues that promote a deeper understanding of sustainable population growth, identify the barriers to access to services and awareness to ensure empowered choice and decision-making for all. Our range of projects explore sexual and reproductive health and rights, even for those that are considered contentious within the sub-Saharan African context.
