The purpose of this project is to gain a better understanding of the key barriers to adolescents’ sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and how these barriers can be overcome through programmatic and policy interventions. ICRW will use a variety of research methods and strategies, including primary and secondary data analysis, to assess the sexual and reproductive health status, needs and challenges of 10-19 year olds in urban Dhaka. The ultimate goal of the project is to formulate a set of recommendations for programmatic and policy options that the World Bank, and potentially other donors and implementing organizations, can utilize in improving ASRH in urban Bangladesh.
