The Issues

All adolescent girls need support and education in navigating the basic aspects of maturation and understanding sexuality. A well-designed sport programme can create activities and sessions that target and serve this need.  There are other issues that are more prevalent and pose a greater challenge in certain cultural contexts. For instance, bride price or dowry is a significant SRHR issue in Uganda and India, but not necessarily in Colombia, where early pregnancy is more common. In Sierra Leone and Ethiopia, FGM is a major preoccupation and concern for adolescent girls, whereas sex trafficking is something that girls in Cambodia or Nepal are facing.  In this section, we cover a large range of SRHR issues, including context information about each issue and specific strategies for how a sport programme can (and does) address the issue.
