This further analysis report on adolescents uses data from the fifth round of the Nepal Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) and sheds light on a number of key domains for adolescents in Nepal. The main purpose of this report is
to highlight descriptive statistics and trends in a number of domains,including use of mass media and communication technology, attitude towards domestic violence, knowledge of HIV and AIDS, and subjective well-being of female
adolescents aged 15-19 in Nepal. Within these domains, sub-group analysis disaggregated by geographical area as well as socioeconomic characteristics helps identify the most marginalized of adolescent groups.

More than one-third of adolescent girls aged 15-19 years believed that wife-beating was justified, and six out of ten adolescent girls surveyed did not have a comprehensive knowledge about how HIV can and cannot be transmitted.
Further disaggregating these results, this report finds that both justification of wife-beating and incorrect knowledge about HIV prevention and transmission is highest among adolescent girls in Madhesi Dalit, Madhesi, and Muslim
households in the Terai region. Girls from these communities also had, on average, lower self-reported subjective well-being.
