During this reporting period, research activities were completed in Lebanon and Iraq. This included Focus Group Discussions with adolescent girls, with parents or caregivers of adolescent girls; and key informant interviews with community leaders.
Initial findings suggest that adolescent girls attending programming in safe spaces report basic knowledge on certain SRH topics, but knowledge on where to seek services is often limited to the safe space. More in-depth analysis will identify indicators to use to measure % increase in knowledge on SRH and how to seek services.
Additionally, a qualitative assessment of adolescent girls’ Information and Communication Technology (ICT) access was conducted in Lebanon. Initial findings suggest that access to technology is quite high among adolescent girls, but comfort with accessing health information using technology is low. Further, certain groups of girls (i.e. married adolescent girls, adolescent girls living in more protective households) face greater barriers to accessing technology.
