Two out of every seven new HIV infections globally in 2019 were among young people (15–24 years). Additional efforts need to be made to address the structural factors that increase the vulnerability of adolescent girls, young women and young key populations and their risk of acquiring HIV, such as gender inequalities, gender-based violence, poverty, stigma and discrimination, and insufficient implementation of comprehensive sexuality education programmes.

Sexual health services for the YKPs are key programs that contribute to reducing the increased risks of STI and HIV infection, including not only HIV/ STIs services, but also harm reduction, mental health and specialized services for each population. It is essential to understand the characteristics of the YKPs in order to promote their access to sexual health services. The study, with the sample of 65 people who self-identified as YKP, investigated their views on sexual health and the factors influencing their access to and use of sexual health services. The average age of the participants is 20.5 years old. The age at which they initiated sexual experiences varies widely. Most participants had their first sexual intercourse between the ages of 18 and 20, with the earliest at 14 years old.
