|Date added||November 22, 2020|
Sexual and reproductive health rights are critical entitlements best supported through human rights-based approaches empowering duty-bearers and rights-holders. Implementing these requires information
on the current needs and challenges faced by those seeking to claim their sexual and reproductive health
rights. We aimed to identify the underlying factors influencing the realisation of sexual and reproductive
health rights for adolescent girls and young women living Ugandan slums by: (1) exploring the role of
relevant service providers and stakeholders; and (2) uncovering knowledge and gaps in protecting
adolescent girls’ and young women’s sexual and reproductive health rights.
Qualitative data were collected through focus groups and interviews focused on current knowledge,
behaviours and attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health rights among adolescent girls and
young women, service providers and stakeholders. Data were analysed thematically.
