Adolescent Relationships in Rwanda: Dating, Couple Conflict, and Sexuality

Adolescent Relationships in Rwanda: Dating, Couple Conflict, and Sexuality, produced by Promundo and Health Development Initiative (HDI), presents findings from qualitative research in Kigali and Rutsiro. This study seeks to understand the nature of adolescent relationships, including experiences of violence; their sexual and reproductive health behavior; as well as barriers to SRH services and information, to inform both policy and programming. This report presents an in-depth view of adolescent romantic relationships by focusing on the larger community norms that underlie much of their daily challenges. Special attention is paid to unmet SRH needs within the context of romantic relationships.
