Advocates for Youth Report Examines Youth Policies Within PEPFAR

April 3, 2012

A new report from Advocates for Youth "analyzes youth policies within the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), including its legislative authority, most recent five-year strategy, relevant guidance documents, and all 21 currently available PEPFAR country Partnership Frameworks" and includes "a set of recommendations for the U.S. Congress, [Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC)], and Partner Country governments, to design and implement the bold policy needed to support youth sexual and reproductive health and rights, including promotion of comprehensive sexuality education and youth-friendly, integrated, HIV and family planning services," Advocates for Youth Executive Vice President Debra Hauser writes in an RH Reality Check blog post. She concludes, "In the end, it is young people who hold the key to ending this epidemic. That's why they should be at the center, not the periphery, of our programs and policies" (4/3).
