Our priorities

Improving sexual health of young people and girls, including comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) and addressing child and early forced marriage (CEFM)

Improving sexual health of young people

Young people are the fastest-growing population group on the planet and make up over fifty per cent of the population in some developing countries, yet their voices and concerns relating to sexual and reproductive health are often overlooked or purposefully neglected. Their experiences and priorities are often relegated by policy makers, community leaders and key service providers. But the choices and behaviours young people make - or that are made for them - are profoundly important in determining health outcomes and achieving poverty reduction for them across their lifespan and for subsequent generations.

AmplifyChange supports action that aims to increase young people’s access to comprehensive sexuality information and education, sexual and reproductive health services and menstrual hygiene management, as well as efforts that seek to affect positive legal, social and gender transformations for the realization of young people’s rights. We are interested in supporting sustainable outcomes that adopt rights-based approaches to young people’s SRHR and institutionalise positive approaches to youth sexuality. Youth leadership and participation, and gender transformative approaches are all integral to success.
