Young People Advancing Sexual and Reproductive Health: Toward a New Normal
Right now, the largest generation of young people in history is in or approaching their reproductive years. Youth need information about their bodies and rights, as well as tools and support to make the decisions best for themselves and their circumstances.
The Youth Investment, Engagement, and Leadership Development (YIELD) Project report, Young People Advancing Sexual and Reproductive Health: Toward a New Normal, finds that making this happen will require young people’s participation and leadership at every level in youth sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) initiatives—from ideation to implementation.
Youth SRHR must transform from a field for young people to one with young people.
