There are approximately 450 million young people in the Asia-Pacific region, with only few of them able to receive reproductive health services. This leaves them potentially vulnerable to coercion, abuse and exploitation, unintended pregnancies, and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Denying young people of reproductive health services and education is a violation of young people’s human rights.
Therefore, youth participants of the fifth Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights committed to advance the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people. They pledged their cooperation and collaboration to identify solutions to the challenges that young people face.
