Every young person will one day have life-changing decisions to make about their sexual and reproductive health. Yet research shows that the majority of adolescents lack the knowledge required to make those decisions responsibly, leaving them vulnerable to coercion, sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancy.

This includes supporting comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health care to support girls to avoid pregnancies. CVS-Tanzania also advocates supporting girls who become pregnant so they can return to school and reach their full potential.
