Adolescents are vital human resources. The problems of adolescents are increasing since social forces have put tremendous pressure on them. A large number of adolescents are facing problems of increased vulnerability and risk pertaining to health due to their risky behavior. A large number of adolescent girls are also being exploited both physically and sexually. The wider exposure to pornographic literature and sites has also created problems for them. The proportion of premarital sex relations among adolescents is gradually increasing while on the other hand the proportion of married adolescent is still high in India. Reproductive and sexual health status among the adolescents has been reported to be poor as their knowledge regarding it is found to be very low. The sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents and young people are firmly on national agendas in India. The present paper attempts to examine the awareness, knowledge, attitude and perception regarding reproductive and sexual health issues among adolescent boys and girls.
