Abstract

This study seeks to assess knowledge that adolescents students in Moshi Municipality posses on reproductive health. Through the study I understand preference of adolescents, their knowledge on reproductive health and sources from which adolescents get that knowledge. The major discovery in this study was inadequate knowledge on reproductive health among adolescents. This make adolescent more vulnerable to reproductive health problem, where others have failed to continue with secondary school due to early pregnancy. In helping adolescents knowledge on reproductive health should be provided in both formal and informal sectors throughout the year, within a conducive environment that will allow privacy and confidentiality. Social worker should cooperate with other stakeholders within a community to understand adolescents as the most vulnerable group and help them through frequently visits in order to understand their need, make referral and advocating for their right.
