Expert Meeting

315 minuten

"Today, we have the largest generation of young people the world has ever seen, with more than 40 per cent of the world's population under the age of 25," said Dr. Laura Laski, who leads sexual and reproductive health initiatives at UNFPA (UNFPA, January 2014). Young people have the right and need to access Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services. We know SRH services improve adolescent health, and many organisations have developed and implemented standards, guidelines and tools to establish Youth Friendly SRH services. Yet questions remain: are these services actually reaching adolescents and young people; and what are the best strategies to increase awareness, demand, access, quality, and uptake. This expert meeting reviews the evidence and research gaps on YFHS. It also provides a platform for sharing experiences of implementing YFHS programmes, and for highlighting young people’s perspectives of YFHS. >> Registration is free but required before June 30 Draft Programme
