Youth in Southern Africa face many sexual and reproductive health challenges, such as unintended pregnancies, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), limited youth-friendly health facilities, and sexual exploitation. Adolescents represent more than half of Sub-Saharan Africa’s population (United Nations, 2018), including in Comoros, the newest member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). This chapter on Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Rights (ASRHR) will look at progress in the 16 SADC
countries in implementing the SADC Gender Protocol articles that focus on Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE), access to Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) services for young people, and teenage pregnancy.
