Involving Youth In Reproductive Health Programs

September 24, 1998

Based on evidence from several national and international reproductive health projects that have sought to involve young people, this paper outlines the issues that organizations have addressed in promoting youth participation, how they have addressed the issues, the challenges they have faced and the relative success of their efforts. Drawing on the lessons learned from these experiences, the author offers guidelines for involving young people and suggests areas where more knowledge and documentation is needed.
