When adolescents and young people especially young women and girls have limited access to SRHR information, they are more likely to have an adolescent birth; face increased risk of maternal mortality, unsafe abortion, and coercion; and can be more likely to contract sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV. Throw in the Covid19 pandemic and these challenges are exacerbated to alarming rates.
The prestigious annual intergenerational dialogue is back, where stakeholders of all ages gather to discuss SRHR challenges affecting young people such as the ones mentioned above and how these issues can be addressed with long-term solutions.
The IGD 2021, therefore, seeks to collaborate with like minded individuals and organisations such as yourself to facilitate partnerships, foster powerful dialogue and innovate towards gender equality and improved Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights under the theme Prioritising Adolescent and Youth Sexual Reproductive Health to Achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
