The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Sub-Regional Office for the Caribbean/Barbados is working to strengthen the evidence base on adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health and rights in four countries: Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia St. Vincent and the Grenadines.   The research presented in this document aims to generate new knowledge and provide the baseline data to inform the development of programmes to support adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health and rights. It also aims to inform UNFPA’s 2012 – 2016 programme of assistance to these English-speaking Windward Islands. The research comprises three components: Desk review; Consultations through interviews with key stakeholders; and Focus group discussions with young people.
