The fundamental right of individuals (including young people) to decide, freely and for themselves, whether, when, and how many children to have is central to the vision and goals of FP2030.

Yet today, many of the more than one billion young people (ages 10-24) living in the 69 FP2020 focus countries do not have access to high-quality sexual and reproductive health care programs that meet their needs and empower them to determine matters related to their sexuality for themselves. Unfortunately, many young people are prevented from accessing and using modern forms of contraception due to discrimination, stigma, and a lack of information.

This site is a quick-reference guide to the following:

  • Adolescent & youth content in the FP2030 commitments;

  • Key resources that will equip you with an understanding of how to make the case for investing in young people, and the current state of family planning and adolescent and youth engagement, data, laws/policies, and programs/services; and

  • Youth-led organizations working to promote the rights of young people by improving access to and use of contraception.
