Potential policy impact
Our research concludes shows that targeted interventions need to be complemented by universal strategies such as the improvement of school-based sex and relationships education, the expansion of family planning and programmes to increase all girls' educational expectations.
We conducted a randomised control trial with 449 at-risk young
A process evaluation included case studies of four schools, in-depth interviews, focus groups and 'snapshot' observations of practice in a wider sample of participating schools.
