This assessment identified a variety of factors that may contribute to adolescent girl nutritional status in Zimbabwe. Rates of food insecurity and low dietary diversity were high. Pregnancy among unmarried adolescents was also common. The report's recommendations include implementing integrated social and behavioral change activities targeting reproductive health, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and nutrition through platforms like school clubs, religious gatherings and water collection points, as well as facilitating interventions to keep adolescent girls in school and improving access to food sources to address food insecurity.
