This report, based on in-depth interviews with 102 adolescents, is a sequel to focus group discussions and a national survey of adolescents in Ghana2undertaken as part of a project entitled Protecting the Next Generation. The 102 in-depth interviews (IDIs) were conducted with in- and out-of-school males and females in urban and rural areas and some adolescents in potentially vulnerable circumstances. Among those in the last category were very young adolescents who were pregnant or had given birth, were working on the street, or were living in borstal homes or a refugee camp. The general aim was to understand their circumstances, perceptions and attitudes concerning certain aspects of their lives, especially their sexual and reproductive health.
