This special issue aims to draw together the work of academics and policy makers to make available current thinking, evidence, responses and debates relating to adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) sexual and reproductive health needs in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). It is expected that this interdisciplinary and cross cutting special issue will provide an avenue for experts at universities, in international organisations, civil society groups and intergovernmental organisations to offer important insights on the subject matter. It will also serve as an important resource for analysis and critical engagement for researchers and implementers working in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights, HIV prevention (including PrEP/PEP), population studies, indigenous knowledge systems, youth studies, gender and sexuality studies, sociology, psychology, amongst others to examine the range of conceptual, empirical, legal, policy, practice as well as institutional and operational issues these new challenges present.
Submission deadline: 31 December 2017.
