Simavi and our five African partners advocate for a comprehensive approach towards SRHR
Last week was one of the most crucial weeks in the year for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights advocates around the world. During the 48th session of the Commission on Population and Development, delegates from countries around the world discussed the integration of SRHR issues in the post-2015 development agenda. Read the latest updates from our colleagues Nienke Blauw and Lara van Kouterik on the wo=men blog and the FCI blog.
Listening to African young people’s voices is vital in making Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights policies and services more friendly and accessible for them. Action research done by young people in Uganda shows that youth peer educators, who act as the main source of information for young people in a community, have a positive influence on young people’s use of contraceptives and health-seeking behaviour. For a more detailed account about engaging young people in SRHR education and services, we developed these case studies from Uganda and Kenya.
