The linkages between the MDGs and comprehensive sexuality education for young people

Comprehensive sexuality education seeks to empower and equip young people with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to determine and enjoy their sexuality – physically and emotionally, individually and in relationships. It views ‘sexuality’ holistically and within the context of emotional and physical development.

A Standards-driven approach to improve the quality of health-care services for adolescents

Global initiatives are urging countries to prioritize quality as a way of reinforcing human rights-based approaches to health (iERG, 2013). Yet, evidence from both high- and middle-low income countries shows that services for adolescents are highly fragmented, poorly coordinated and uneven in quality (WHO, 2014). Evidence suggests that adolescents experience many barriers to health care (WHO/UNAIDS, 2015).
