teens

The goal of the Teen Seen programme was to address Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health issues such as unplanned pregnancy, STIs, voluntary abstinence, and referral to appropriate services and counselling specifically for young people. The format used was based on the edutainment approach wherein entertainment was used as a vehicle for education and information. Each programme focused on a Sexual and Reproductive Health topic discussion, youth news, vox pop and artistic performances. Teen Seen forums have focused on:

• Discrimination and stigma associated with teen sex and pregnancy

• Teens and under age sex

• Teens and male sexual responsibility

• HIV/AIDS vulnerability

• Communicating with parents

• Peer leadership

• Teens and self-esteem

• Teens and abortion

• Sexuality

• Abstinence

• Peer pressure
