Could young people’s voices be the missing link for youth contraceptive programming? Could we – young designers and adults, everywhere – work together to transform how we support young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services?
In short: yes.
PSI’s youth-powered SRH programming likeAdolescents
360 (A360) has taught us that the best youth-responsive programming comes from young people themselves.
In fact, young people like me have helped to develop A360’s programs that lead with what girls themselves prioritize. And in the 2.5 years since A360 started implementation, 360,000+ adolescent girls have voluntarily adopted modern contraception through the
project, well surpassing our goals. As we evolve youth programs to respond to COVID-19, young people like myself must continue steering the ship.
