The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) conducted a review and program scan of peer-reviewed and grey literature on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) of adolescents and youth in urban areas to explore the behavioral drivers, barriers and contextual factors and identify SBCC interventions targeting the sexual health of urban youth.

The findings highlight promising practices and synthesize lessons learned, and offer insight into the elements that may yield more positive results for behavior change among urban youth. Below is a searchable table showing the peer-reviewed and grey literature articles from the review, as well as links to the top ten articles from the review, the Executive Summary of the review and the complete Literature Review.
