This report highlights the voices of nearly 590,000 girls, boys, young women and men around the world who participated in UNICEF’s poll on policy priorities for advancing adolescent girls’ rights. They made their voices heard loud and clear on advancing girls’ well-being and leadership, with five salient, evidence-based and strategic policy priorities.

With six years left to realise the commitments made to adolescent girls in the Sustainable Development Goals, urgent investment is needed to progress on their rights across health, nutrition, education, protection, economic empowerment and indeed gender inequality: The five game-changing priorities presented in this publication provide a roadmap for much-needed acceleration towards these goals.
