Addressing Youth Needs and Involvement

Young people’s beliefs and decisions about family planning are critical to their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Too often, young people face obstacles that limit their access to modern contraceptive methods of their choice. The International Youth Sub-Committee is taking the lead on addressing youth needs and involvement at the ICFP.
