This document provides a literature review on the issue of sexual exploitation of adolescent boys. National-level surveys have shown that boys experience sexual violence and sexual exploitation at rates lower than girls – but at rates that deserve greater attention than what they have been receiving.

After the literature review, this publication presents experiences from 11 pilot projects that included research and the development of training and sensitization materials to service providers who work with child survivors of sexual abuse.
