A Smart Investment: Integrating Sexual and Reproductive Health into Multi-sectoral Youth Programs

There are an astounding 3 billion people under the age of 25 alive today, 1.8 billion of whom are between 10 and 24 years of age. These young people—the majority of whom live in less developed countries—are facing remarkably high rates of early marriage, unintended pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and maternal mortality and morbidity, as well as severely limited access to jobs, education, and political participation. While today’’s young people are confronting formidable challenges, they also have the capacity to effect enormous change in the world, reducing poverty and helping build more just and prosperous societies.
