Developing Bold and Transformative Commitments to Adolescents and Youth
WHO AYSRH Data Sheets
Adolescents & Youth
To meet its goals, FP2030 partners must promote and protect the rights of adolescents and youth (AY) to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, including contraception. Strong commitments that prioritize adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health (AYSRHR) send a clear message about the vital importance of improving adolescent and youth SRH knowledge, fostering their agency and ability to make informed decisions, facilitating their access to high-quality SRH services responsive to their needs, and ensuring a supportive policy and social environment. Actionable commitments will include rights-based and evidence-informed strategies that assist AY to improve their understanding of SRHR, correct myths and misinformation around sexuality and contraception, develop skills that support positive behaviors and decision-making, and emphasize the importance of voluntary choice in the use of contraception.
