The sexual exploitation of children and adolescents is a widely underreported public health problem. Among multiple specific forms, it includes age-disparate transactional sex (TS), or the practice of sexual activity based the exchange of material support, favours, or status in some form.

Please join us for a webinar where we will share the findings from a qualitative study focussed on age-disparate transactional sex (ATS) in urban favela communities of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil between adult men (over 18) and girls (under 18), involving a minimum 5-year age disparity. We will present the research background, design, methods and the main findings of the qualitative phase of the study, which employed social norms theory.
