Abstract

Today India is a developing nation and represents itself at International level, but we cannot ignore the fact that our country faces major challenges and social issues at a large scale which has proved to be an obstruction for the development of our nation. We will discuss some of the major challenges faced by our nation and for convenience I would do my best to rephrase all the issues as simply as possible for a quick access. Need for Sexual and Reproductive health awareness in Adolescents: Saathiya Resource Kit: In recent years lack of awareness among teenagers has resulted III unsafe sexual practices, violence, substance abuse and mental disorders. Including depression and anxiety. According to UNICEF India's latest data,one in three adolescent girls have experienced physical, sexual and emotional violence and I 3% have experienced sexual violence by their partner Around 2.6 million girls have experienced forced sexual intercourse or another form of forced sexual act in the country. Also 77% of the girls were sexually abused by either husband or partner while 3% reported Sexual violence by a stranger. One in six girls began child bearing in adolescence. The study also revealed that 45% girls and 48% boys justify wife beating which was also reflected in it.33% women are beaten by their husband or partner. A Lancet study released last year showed that suicides contributed to the highest number of deaths among teenagers between 15-19 years in India. WHO says 4.5% of the total population suffers from depressive disorders that stand at more than 50 million people. The Government of India is making an attempt at educating adolescents on the sex education. The new approach is to involve peer educators from within their own community so that they feel comfortable to discuss their problems.1
