Health+ Instrument

The Global Early Adolescent Health+ Instrument draws from existing validated scales and items and also includes new bespoke scales created to obtain information intended to illuminate the Study's research questions.The Instrument was tested for face validity among 20 adolescents aged 10-14 in each of 15 poor urban or peri-urban sites around the world, pilot tested among 120 adolescents in 14 sites, and after revising, pilot tested again among 75 adolescents in 6 sites.
