Adolescents’ Perceptions of Healthy Relationships: A Generative Approach to Addressing Child Sexual Violence- Tanzania

Contributed by a member of the RISE Community • November 25th, 2019

In this policy brief we propose an alternative approach to addressing sexual violence drawing on research conducted on adolescent perceptions of healthy relationships in Tanzania. We propose a generative strength-based approach anchored on working with existing community structures that have the potential to positively shape the prevention of sexual violence among young people in Tanzania. The multi method 2-year adolescent guided peer inquiry had the goal of understanding adolescents’ perceptions and experiences of healthy relationships. A total of 8 primary and 4 secondary schools were purposively selected in Kinondoni and Magu districts in Mwanza and Dar-es-salaam respectively.
