UNICEF’s Assessment of East Asia and Pacific Regional Situation and Key Areas in Gender-Responsive Adolescent Health (GRAH)

The Young Child Survival Development and Gender Sections of UNICEF’s East Asia and Pacific Regional Office commissioned a regional assessment of adolescent health to facilitate the operationalization of UNICEF’s Gender-Responsive Adolescent Health (GRAH) approach in the region. The assessment will provide an in-depth analysis of the current situation of key adolescent health issues and related gender disparities in health status and outcomes. It will also map interventions and approaches aimed at addressing specific adolescent health needs and approaches to mitigating gendered barriers and inequalities particularly for the most marginalised adolescent girls and boys. Based on these assessments, recommendations on policy and intervention strategies that take into consideration partnerships, sustainability, and comparative advantage will be developed to support UNICEF’s implementation and roll-out of GRAH across the region.
