UNESCO commissioned a study to conduct a situational analysis on the status of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) of students and gender-based violence (GBV) in technical and vocational colleges (TVCs) in Malawi operating under the Technical, Entrepreneurship and Vocational (TEVET) system. The findings of the study will contribute towards programming and advocacy on prioritising SRH and GBV education and service provision for TVCs. Among others, the study found that both male and female students are sexually active and engage in casual, unprotected and transactional sex influenced by sexual desire, peer pressure, and need for financial support. Of great concern is the finding that there are cases of male instructors having sexual relationships with female students with no disciplinary action taken against the instructor.
