Introduction & Registration

Gender inequities are a key underlying determinant of the survival, health, and well-being of large numbers of adolescents and adults. At the root of inequities are gender norms and attitudes, which prescribe differential status, power, access to resources, and expected behaviors (including in relationships) according to culturally appropriate expectations for males and females.

Early adolescence is one of the most critical stages of human development yet one of the most understudied and poorly understood. In part, this is due to the special challenges that researchers face in carrying out research with very young adolescents (10-14 years). These challenges include particular ethical and legal considerations and a lack of tools developed specifically for use with this age group taking into account their cognitive and psychosocial development.

The Global Early Adolescent Study (GEAS) is a multi-country, 2-phased study that seeks to understand how gender socialization occurs in early adolescence around the world. It also aims to learn how it shapes health and wellness for adolescents and their communities. Through this work, the GEAS has developed a set of validated tools that researchers and programmers can use to measure gender norms and attitudes in early adolescence.

The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), UNDP-UNFPA-UNICEF-WHO-World Bank Human Reproduction Programme (HRP) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHBSPH) are convening a series of three webinars in August to share findings from the GEAS study and share a toolkit developed to guide research and programming with young adolescents.
