Young people ages 15–29 experience poor sexual and reproductive health and rights outcomes. Yet related policies, programs, and services do not reach youth at the highest risk, nor do they consistently involve youth in decision-making.
But young people are not only uniquely aware of their own needs and wants, they are also creative, resourceful, and deeply invested in driving new solutions. Their participation and leadership are central to making SRHR solutions more accessible and equitable.
The Youth Investment, Engagement, and Leadership Development (YIELD) Project is a stakeholder-led synthesis of current best practices in Adolescent and Youth SRHR. This research suggests that improving outcomes for young people requires direct youth partnership, from ideation to implementation.
The YIELD Hub 3-year strategy builds on the concept of the YIELD Hub and the evidence from the YIELD Project.
Our collective action learning groups convene diverse stakeholders to standardize and improve youth partnership in Adolescent and Youth SRHR.
