Qualitative Evidence of Adolescents' Sexual and Reproductive Health Experiences in Uganda

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches


In the last decade, young people have emerged as the group with the fastest growing HIV incidence in Sub-
Saharan Africa. Although, both HIV and adolescent pregnancy have been decreasing in Uganda over the
last 15 years, HIV prevalence is still unacceptably high at 6.4%, and 25% of 15 to 19-year-olds in 2007 were
pregnant or had already had a live birth. This report draws on 103 semistructured in-depth interviews with 12 to 19-year-old males and females, in school and out of school, from urban and rural areas, to learn about adolescents risk and protective behaviors related to HIV and unintended pregnancy.
