Excerpt
From June to September 2003, Malaysia participated in a case study on adolescent sexual and reproductive health, in the form of a review of literature, studies and projects, initiated by the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific. A total of 260 documents were reviewed, covering a wide range of concerns in the area of adolescent sexual and reproductive health. There is limited literature available on this important subject, which is hardly surprising given its cultural and religious sensitivity. It was particularly difficult to find accurate information about sensitive and controversial subjects such as premarital sex, contraceptive use by the unmarried, homosexuality and abortion.
