The UYAHF Team
Young people are often sexually active, but rarely have the legal right to freely decide on our sexuality, neither do we have access to adequate health services. Young people shielded away from to actively engage in policy and decision-making processes in the domain of SRHR. When decisions are made, or policies and programs concerning young people are developed, we have the fundamental right to co-decide on these matters. Young people all over the world are in dire need of an enabling environment, in which we can make our own choices and make our voices heard, supported by comprehensive and correct information, have access to contraceptives and safe abortion, and to youth-friendly health services where we are treated with respect and enjoy confidentiality.
To ensure meaningful youth participation, participating in policy development, implementation and evaluation is of great importance. When the voice of young people is heard and taken into account, programs and policies will be more effective, as they would directly reflect our actual needs.
Our advocacy efforts for increasing meaningful youth participation in the field of SRHR are therefore essential.
