A Rapid Assessment Most-At-Risk Adolescents and Young People to HIV in Lao PDR. UNICEF and Ministry of Health Lao PDR (2011)

Rapid assessment_MARA_Young_people_Lao

The Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) has a ‘latent’ HIV epidemic1, with rates of HIV estimated at just 0.2 per cent of the total population aged between 15-49 years of age. However, because of its location in the heart of the Mekong, surrounded by countries with high rates of HIV in concentrated epidemics3, Lao PDR is believed to be “in danger of an expanding epidemic”. More than 50 per cent of the population of Lao PDR is below the age of 20 and adolescents and young people engaged in high- risk behaviour for HIV are an emerging priority across Asia and the Pacific.

The Sexual and Reproductive Health of Younger Adolescents: Research Issues in Developing Countries: Background Paper for a Consultation. Dixon-Mueller R. (2011)

immage

This paper reviews quantitative and qualitative evidence on adolescents’ sexual and reproductive health from a number of developing countries and, where possible, highlights findings for boys and girls aged under 15 years in those studies where findings are disaggregated by age and sex (which is not always the case). The evidence is sporadic, however, and is by no means representative of all developing countries. The review is organized around six interwoven processes that mark girls’ and boys’ passage through adolescence, with an emphasis on the early years.

A Research Study on Status of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Young People in Pakistan. Wit J, Baig Q, Rehman S, et al (2010)

SRHR Report_2010

More than any other development issue, achieving good Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) is dependent on the recognition of specific human rights. It is not a matter of simple funding or providing education and health services. In Pakistan, human sexuality is the subject of strong ideology and moral views and traditions, often rightly or wrongly presented as part of religion. There is little known about the Sexual and Reproductive practices and behaviours of 12 – 18 year olds.

Young People Most at Risk of HIV. UNAIDS and FHI (2010)

Young People Most at Risk of HIV. UNAIDS and FHI (2010) This paper is designed to call more attention to young people within the groups considered “most at risk” for HIV—those who sell sex, those who inject drugs, and young men who have sex with men. Despite the growing attention that has been given to programming for these groups, little explicit focus has emerged on the particular needs of young people in these populations. At the same time, efforts to prevent HIV among young people have tended to focus on the general population of young people, for whom more is known about effective programming
