Report on sexual and reproductive health of adolescents in Bangladesh by Population Council

In its report titled ‘Adolescents in Bangladesh: A Situation Analysis of Programmatic Approaches to Sexual and Reproductive Health Education and Services,’ the Population Council presents a comprehensive review of the status of sexual and reproductive health of adolescents in Bangladesh. The report concludes that stigmatisation of sexual and reproductive issues has a significant impact on their overall health and well-being, as adolescents in Bangladesh often enter their reproductive years poorly informed about SRH issues, without adequate access to SRH-related information or services. The report recommends the adoption of multi-faceted and age-appropriate programmes to enhance access to information and services, and also calls for more comprehensive evidence collection on the effectiveness of community interventions.
