The Government of India has issued regulations to make high schools more ‘girl-friendly’. How well do school meet these requirements? What else must be done? To find the answers, Karnataka Health Promotion Trust (KHPT) surveyed 1,075 high schools in northern Karnataka in 2012.

This research is part of the Department for International Development’s STRIVE Programme which is led by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)
