Girls Decide: Choices on sex and pregnancy
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.
