      Adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) has been overlooked historically despite the high risks that countries face for its neglect. Some of the challenges faced by adolescents across the world include early pregnancy and parenthood, difficulties accessing contraception and safe abortion, and high rates of HIV and sexually transmitted infections. The Global Fund for Children (GFC) invests in undercapitalized organizations that provide critical services to vulnerable children. The Fund finds and supports grassroots organizations worldwide to transform the lives of children on the edges of society – trafficked children, refugees, child laborers – and help them regain their rights and pursue their dreams.

Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age, and enable better health care and education for their children, should they choose to become mothers.
