"Programmes that seek to improve health outcomes for a wide range of vulnerable adolescents need to address underlying economic and sociocultural constraints..."

The Population Council's Adolescent Girls Empowerment Programme (AGEP) was a social, health, and economic asset-building programme designed to each vulnerable girls aged 10–19 in 4 of the 10 provinces of Zambia from late 2013 to early 2016 (see Related Summaries, below). An impact evaluation was embedded among 4,661 adolescent girls at baseline; the results of the study after 2 years of AGEP implementation (midline), as well 2 years after the implementation was completed (endline), are presented in this report.
