Reproductive choice can be life-changing for young people. With information on their health and rights, young
people can understand their bodies, have safe relationships on their terms, avoid unintended pregnancy and determine their own futures.
Yet, globally, teenagers find it harder to access their reproductive choices. From prevailing stigma and misinformation to needless restrictions that require parental
or partner consent, an estimated 23 million adolescent girls want access to contraception, but don't have it.
To help transform access, in 2017, MSI launched our adolescent strategy and have supported over
4.6 million adolescents to access reproductive choice since.
Marking International Youth Day today, we're sharing a round-up of our lessons learned along the way and how we can partner to transform access, together.
