Adolescents and young adults (15–24 years) constitute about one-third of the total population of Nigeria, and their well-being is intricately tied to the country’s prospects for sustainable development. The HIV prevalence among 15–24-year-old men and women is 2.5 percent and 3.1 percent, respectively. In 2013, it was estimated that 160,000 adolescents (aged 10–19) in Nigeria were living with HIV. Rightfully, an increasing focus is being paid to the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) of young Nigerians, however it is essential that the dialogue and interventions around young people’s SRH be informed and take into account the body of evidence available on the SRH of young people in Nigeria. In the Nigerian context, knowledge generated from program/projects is often not easily accessible to stakeholders who require such information for evidence-based policymaking and program implementation. With this annotated bibliography (based on the SRH findings of Nigerians aged 10–24), we seek to share with interested stakeholders the body of “grey literature” available on the SRH of young Nigerians.
