Incorporation of Life Skills Education for Adolescents in the School Curriculum - Rajasthan Experience

Sunil Thomas Jacob

Rajasthan, the largest state in India has a population of 56.5 million according to 2001 census, which is about 5.50 percent of the national population. Adolescents (age group 10-19) constitute about 23 % in the state. Investment in adolescent reproductive and sexual health will yield dividends in terms of delaying age at marriage, reducing incidence of teenage pregnancy, meeting unmet contraceptive needs, reducing number of maternal deaths, reducing incidence of STIs and reducing proportion of HIV positive in 10-19 years age group.
