USAID Adolescent Reproductive Health (ARH) is a youth coled initiative to empower girls and boys of 10-19 years,
including the most marginalized, to attain their reproductive health (RH) rights. The goal of the program is to support
Nepali adolescents to reach their full potential by choosing and practicing healthy reproductive behaviors together with the support of their community members.
The baseline study aims to assess the current situation of adolescents' sexual and reproductive health in USAID ARH
working areas (11 districts and 60 municipalities), with specific objectives:
* to identify family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) knowledge and practices among adolescents,
exploring mass media exposure and preference among adolescents,
* assess menstrual hygiene practices among adolescents,
* identify factors affecting the age at marriage, and
* identify gender and social norms related to adolescent
SRH issues in the community.
