Championing Youth Leadership in the SRHR/Family Planning Sector: Lessons from FP2030

Led by FP2030.

The sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents and youth must be met to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Within the 10-29 demographic, there are SRH challenges faced by youth of all genders, but adolescent girls bear unique needs, aspirations, and compounding challenges. Focusing on adolescents and youth increases sustainability, has a three-generation impact, and decreases the need for future social behavior change interventions as their behaviors are shaped during adolescence. FP2030, a global partnership centered solely on family planning works with youth leaders and advocates as part of its group of technical leaders who oversee the country’s FP2030 commitment to family planning. This session’s focus aligns with the third conference theme: Advancing Women’s Leadership in Health. Specifically, the discussion will focus on best practices for promoting future women’s and youth leadership as a critical path to the success of the FP2030 partnership and building its legacy and future leaders in FP service delivery, policy advocacy, and research.
