In 2017, the Government of Honduras launched the Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS), with technical assistance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of the Together for Girls partnership. The VACS measure multiple forms of violence against children and adolescents including sexual, physical, and emotional; they also provide important data on risk factors, protective factors, and consequences of violence.

The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between adverse childhood experiences and contraceptive behaviors among young women and men in Honduras.
