The aim of this report was to describe the current state of the sexual and reproductive health of adolescents and youth in Cambodia and this was achieved through the analysis of data on young women aged 15-24 years from the four Cambodian Demographic and Health Surveys (CDHS) conducted in 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2014. Descriptive analyses of key areas of sexual and reproductive health; namely marriage and sexual behaviour, family planning and contraceptive use, adolescent pregnancy and motherhood, knowledge of HIV and AIDS, and the occurrence of symptoms of sexually transmitted infections (STIs); allowed trends over a fifteen year period to be examined.

Sexual and Reproductive Health of Unmarried Young People in Asia and the Pacific. UNFPA. (2016)

immage

In the Asia Pacific region youth make up a sizeable portion of the population. Most of them are unmarried. To follow UNFPA, UNESCO and WHO's 2015 publication reviewing issues, policies and programmes on the sexual and reproductive health of young people in Asia and the Pacific UNFPA APRO commissioned a literature review of unmarried young people in this region. This report on the sexual and reproductive health of unmarried young people in Asia and the Pacific shows they are much more active than expected. We hope the report will encourage more thought, research and deliberation on what it is to be an unmarried young person in the region today.

Youth Global Programme for Sustainable Development and Peace – Youth-GPS (2016-2020). UNDP. (2016)

immage

Young people still face a serious array of development challenges, and their needs and aspirations are regularly overlooked. They are often victims of multiple and interlocked forms of discrimination and face significant barriers to full participation in public life – having adverse impacts on the economy, politics, peace and development at large. How this cohort of young people is supported and engaged will significantly determine the prospects of sustainable development and peace in the coming years.

Youth-GPS is a systematic response to the concerns young people have expressed in global, regional and national fora and the growing demand at all levels for cutting-edge and strategic support in youth programming in all development contexts.

 

Keywords: HIV, responses, gender, violence, human rights

Creating an Enabling Legal and Policy Environment for Young People to Access Harm Reduction Services. UNESCO, UNAIDS, DLA PIPER, Youth LEAD, UNODC and AIDS Data Hub. (2015)

immage

For millions of young people who use drugs from Asia and the Pacific, services that could improve their health, encourage recovery and bring about a better quality of life are often denied. Stigma, discriminatory laws and policies prevent many PWUDfrom accessing the benefits of harm reduction programmes.

 

Eliminating those barriers was the focus of “Access to Harm Reduction Services for Young People Who Inject Drugs in Asia and the Pacific”, a session held on 20 October as part of the 24th International Harm Reduction Conference (IHRC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Youth LEAD ran the session, which was supported by UNESCO Bangkok.

Creating an Enabling Legal and Policy Environment in Asia-Pacific for Young People to Access HIV Testing and Services. UNESCO, UNFPA and UNAIDS. (2015)

immage

The Asia-Pacific Intergovernmental Meeting (IGM) on AIDS, UNESCO, UNAIDS and UNFPA have released an infographic on creating an enabling legal and policy environment in Asia-Pacific for young people to access HIV testing and services. 

The 10 Asia-Pacific countries profiled in the infographic have taken steps to enable young people under 18 to access testing without parental consent, applying different approaches.

Such policies and laws recognize adolescents’ evolving capacities to make decisions about their own health and well-being, and are part of comprehensive legislation guaranteeing young people’s right to the highest attainable standard of health.
