Safe spaces, mobile medical teams and youth engagement are effective ways to reach displaced, uprooted, crisis-affected girls at a critical time in their young lives. This publication is a collection of UNFPA-supported humanitarian interventions for reaching adolescents when crisis heightens vulnerability to gender-based violence, unwanted pregnancy, HIV infection, early and forced marriage and other risks. Together with other countries, it has a Nepal section (32-40 pages), showing how adolescent sexual and reproductive health was promoted after the devastating earthquake struck the country on April 25, 2016 through adolescent-friendly information corners.
