Young people aged 10 to 24 in Asia and the Pacific account for thirty-five percent of new HIV infections in the region. Many young people face difficulties in accessing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) information, commodities, and services because of the compounding issues that they face. Moreover, many existing HIV programs catering to young people do not always include SRH services or link them to relevant youth-friendly SRH services.
Youth LEAD‘s report, "Our Rights Matter Too: Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Young Key Populations in Asia and the Pacific", provides an overview of the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) needs, issues, and priorities of young key populations (YKP) in Asia and the Pacific. The report addresses the gaps in knowledge on the SRHR needs of #YKP in the region, offers recommendations based on a regional study, and contributes essential information for policy and advocacy efforts.
