Join us for these insights into real person-based initiatives into improving the health outcomes of adolescent girls in Uganda.
Uganda adolescents do not experience the Western “teen experience” as many are seen as adults, have their own children, and are married before the age of 18 years. Little research has focused on the adolescent’s understandings and perspectives of their own health, well-being, and ability to flourish individually and within their communities. Involving Ugandan adolescents in research exploring their health understandings and perspectives will enable interventions to be designed that are more context appropriate, economically efficient, and more effective at targeting multiple areas of health.
