Abstract

Questions have been raised on whether abstinence and faithfulness programs work, particularly for young people. Research is needed for evidence-based documentation of the effectiveness or otherwise of abstinence and faithfulness programmes in young people. The review looks at the relevant studies already available, classification of these studies and the review of data and analysis of findings.
