Girls Decide: Choices on sex and pregnancy

Girls Decide: Choices on sex and pregnancy

English

Less than 2c of every $1 spent on international development is directed specifically towards adolescent girls.

We must invest in programmes and services that create choices and opportunities for girls. A positive attitude towards sexuality, sexual behaviour and reproduction, improves the well-being and development of girls and young women.

The choices that are open to any person are affected by 4 dimensions: options, aspirations, expectations and agency. Positive approaches try to expand and enrich each of these areas.
