Abstract
Adolescents are group of apparently healthy individuals. The healthy status of an adolescent determines the health status in his or her adulthood. Many serious diseases in adulthood have their roots in adolescent period. So it is important to maintain healthy habits in day to day life. Among adolescents, girls are particularly vulnerable, not only because they are more likely to be coerced invariably for unprotected sex than boys. But, also they are more susceptible biologically to sexually transmitted diseases including HIV infections. The present study was conducted among the tribal adolescent girls to provide awareness regarding reproductive health to prevent reproductive health problems. A Quantitative research approach was used for the study. The study included 100 tribal adolescent girls residing in model residential school, Chalakudy. One group and pre-test post –test design was adopted and non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to select the samples. Structured teaching programme regarding reproductive health was administered and knowledge level of the students before and after the programme was evaluated to assess the re-tention of knowledge. Data collected using structured questionnaire and analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings of the study revealed that structured teaching programme was effective .They can utilise this knowledge and adopt healthy practices for prevention and control of reproductive health problems in future.
