The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) commit to leaving no one behind and include a global target (SDG 5.3) to eliminate child marriage by 2030. To augment the evidence base on adolescents that are hardest to reach, our GAGE research sample explicitly includes not only girls at risk of child marriage, but those already married or divorced. Our findings in Jordan underscore the importance of outreach to ensure that policy, services and programmes engage with these highly vulnerable girls – especially those from marginalised refugee communities.
