National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day is a day to educate the public about the impact of HIV and AIDS on young people as well as highlight the amazing work young people are doing across the country to fight the HIV & AIDS epidemic. As an international organization, the YCSRR hopes to transform this message from a national day into one that is globally recognized.
Recognizing that young people today are the first generation who have never known a world without HIV&AIDS and the significant ways in which both the HIV epidemic and Post-2015 Development Agenda will affect our lives, the Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YCSRR) is launching a brief on youth sexual and reproductive rights and HIV in the peer-reviewed series: Including Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The brief will highlight some of the important connections between HIV, Sexual and Reproductive Rights, young people and how it all fits into the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The Post-2015 process has become an important platform to advocate for human rights and as young sexual and reproductive rights advocates, the YCSRR hopes to mobilize young people, revitalize political commitments and make clear the connections and importance of including youth and sexual and reproductive into the next agenda.
“Including Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda: Youth Sexual and Reproductive Rights & HIV” is the fourth in the peer reviewed series that will illuminate the connections between SRR and development issues that are central to youth and must be included in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
Each brief includes important definitions, background information and recommendations.
