Abstract

Adolescents are exposed to, they still indulge in risky sexual behaviours includingpre-marital sex, multiple sex partners and unprotected sex despite the various sources of sexual and reproductive health information. A qualitative research design was done in two  primary schools in Morogoro Municipality. The study revealed various formal and informal sources of sexual and reproductive health information. The information is through simple Kiswahili and a mixture of English/Kiswahili  languages. Television uses Kiswahili slang words that may bring confusion. They get very important information as they apply and practice the information in their day to day life.
