Adolescent SRHR since ICPD in 1994
It’s been more than 25 years since the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) took place. In 1994, 179 governments came together in this conference and called for immediate action for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) which must also include the voices of adolescents in the global agenda.
Aditi, Ali, Gogontlejang, Ruben, Kalisito, Scheherazade and Egle were born on the year when the ICPD took place. These young people partnered with international organisations, governments, academia, civil society and funding organisations to publish a new journal of adolescent health supplement on the progress made on adolescent SRHR since the ICPD and the prospects for the next 25 years.
The video contains key messages by the young adults on the following points:
- How the world has changed since these young adults were born
- How our SRHR scenario has changed since the last 25 years
- How the political, research, programmatic and social responses to ASRHR evolved over the last 25 years
- The barriers to ASRHR that exist event today
- Actions needed to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as there are only 10 years left in our hands
- What we need to do for implementing and sustaining a comprehensive package of SRHR interventions
