This literature review assesses the extent of sexual relations between adolescent girls and older male partners (cross-generational sex) in sub-Saharan Africa, the extent of transactional sex, and the behavioral dynamics of girls and men involved in these sexual relations.

The study intends to increase understanding of the dynamics and risks involved in these relationships and to apply lessons to programme development.
