This guide is written for people involved in planning, managing, implementing, monitoring or funding research or programmes that involve gathering information about adolescents aged 10-14. It was written with the development of HIV/AIDS programmes in mind, but is relevant for programmes on many other threats to the health and well-being of this group. After an introduction to the subject it describes what is known about the lives of very young adolescents, and discusses ethical issues; the longest section is about methods of data collection.
