Case Study Bangladesh: Transforming the Lives of Young People. Lakhumalani V. (2016)

immage

Bangladesh remains a low HIV prevalence country. A total of 3,674 cases of HIV have been registered, however, the estimated number of people living with HIV is around 9,500.1 Social and economic factors could trigger a dramatic rise in the number of new HIV infections unless appropriate strategies and actions are urgently taken.

Child marriage is widespread in Bangladesh: 11% of young adolescent girls (aged 10-14) and 46% of young people aged 15-19 are married. In rural areas, 85% of girls are married by the age of 16. Often the husbands are much older, which puts them in a position of control over the girls’ sexual and reproductive health. This case study follows three health journeys of young people who have come to access Link Up services.
