      Nidhi Kotwal, Nilofer Khan and Shashi Kaul
Abstract: This review assessed adolescent reproductive health interventions in different developing countries. Twenty one studies were included. The specific objective of these studies was to improve the knowledge on sexual and reproductive health issues among the adolescent girls aged 10-19 years. The review assessed interventions of the school-based and community programmes. Educational material was delivered using lectures, discussions, and demonstration by posters, flip charts, printed material, over-head projectors, black board, booklets, discussion, etc. by community and peer educators. Different SPSS Version and Excel software were used for analysis. Univariate, multivariate analysis, Paired t test and Chi-square test were applied. Results showed that the knowledge of girls regarding health aspects improved significantly after intervention. There was a considerable increase in the awareness levels of girls with regard to knowledge of health problems, environmental health, nutritional awareness and reproductive and child health. Thus informative and educable interventions seem to have a positive effect on awareness levels which would eventually encourage expansion of knowledge and positive health habits. The article makes no attempt to systematically review all the relevant literature.
