The policy note synthesises findings from baseline mixed-methods research as part of the Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) longitudinal study (2015–2024). Our work included nearly 7,000 adolescent girls and boys between the ages of 10 and 19, as well as their caregivers, service providers and programme and policy actors.
Paying careful attention to gender and regional differences, here we focus on adolescents’ bodily integrity and freedom from violence, which we define as protection from age-based violence, including corporal punishment and bullying; sexual and gender-based violence; early forced and child marriage; and FGM/C and other harmful traditional practices.
