Adolescence in Pakistan: Mary Stopes International (2006) Adolescence in 
Pakistan: Sex, Marriage and Reproductive Health.   "In Pakistan, SRH is 
closely associated with marriage as there are strong social mores which 
discourage sexual activity outside of marriage. For many women, early 
marriage is followed by early and closely spaced pregnancies, resulting 
in high levels of maternal mortality and morbidity. In order to assess 
the current SRH situation in Pakistan, Marie Stopes Society (MSS) 
conducted a baseline knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) survey in 
four districts. This report presents the findings from that survey that 
relate specifically to adolescence..." Marie Stopes International, 
February 2006 [Summary by Maribeth Lovegrove, Development Gateway,
