Marking the International Day of Action for Women’s Health, this May 28th, the Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YCSRR) joins women’s rights activists around the world by calling upon governments and the international community to ensure a holistic, inclusive and human rights-based approach to women and girls’ health in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
In celebrating the advances of the last 30 years, we also recognize the gaps that exist in young people’s health – including young women and girls – and the need to address these in the new development framework.
The latest YCSRR brief on including youth in the Post-2015 agenda highlights some of the important connections between health, women’s health, sexual and reproductive rights, young people and how it all fits into the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The Post-2015 process has become an important platform to advocate for global health and human rights and as young sexual and reproductive rights advocates, the YCSRR hopes to mobilize young people, revitalize political commitments and assert the connections and importance of including youth and sexual and reproductive health and rights into the next agenda.
“Including Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda: Youth Sexual and Reproductive Rights & Health” is the fifth in the peer reviewed series that will illuminate the connections between SRR and development issues that are central to youth and must be included in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
Each brief includes important definitions, background information and recommendations.
