    Results are based on 1689 responses made up of 1159 intervention and 530 control respondents.

    There was a significant increase in correct knowledge about aspects of menstruation in intervention as compared with control schools [odds ratio (OR)=4.5,95% confidence interval (CI)=3.4-6.1).

    Significantly, (OR=2.0,95% Cl=1.1-3.9) more pupils from intervention than control schools scored correctly on practice relating to menstruation.

    Pupils from intervention schools were more likely (P<0.001) to know that a boy experiencing wet dreams could make a girl pregnant and that a girl could get pregnant at her first sexual intercourse (OR=1.4,95% CI=1.1-1.9).
