“Developmental Assets and Sexual and Reproductive Health among 10-to-14 Year-Olds in Northern Uganda,” published in Vol 7, No 1 (2016) of the International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies (IJCYFS) and authored by Peter C. Scales, Maura Shramko and IRH’s Kim Ashburn, discusses findings from a study conducted by Search Institute and IRH, supported by USAID. 

 There is a need for research on adolescent sexual and reproductive health (SRH) to further clarify the broader developmental context of very young adolescents who are generally neglected in SRH research in developing countries. The findings suggest a potential utility for promoting individual and social assets, such as positive relationships and opportunities, commitments to learning, and social competencies, as a strategy for promoting SRH among very young adolescents in a developing country setting.
