Equipped with resources and opportunities to fulfil their potential, the world’s 600 million adolescent girls can become a generation of female change-makers. But most adolescent girls around the word live in poverty, without access to basic services, and face disproportionate discrimination and inequality.

Delivering supplies and services that promote adolescent girls’ health and safety is one of the ways UNICEF works for a gender-equal world where girls and boys enjoy the same rights, resources and opportunities.
