Abstract

What impact do Burundian norms have on teenagers’ sex education? Adolphe Bahimana illustrates how cultural expectations built on local traditions and Christian heritage make discussions about sex taboo across society. The consequences of a lack of sex education for Burundian youth mean parents, governmental and local institutions should engage in a more open conversation, particularly for young girls’ health and development.
