Abstract or Description

This case study describes issues of sexual and reproductive health and rights from the perspectives of young people and provides an analysis of the context in which the Family Planning Association of Nepal (FPAN) is providing youth friendly services and comprehensive sexuality education.
The achievements of IPPF's A+ project to realise youth sexual rights have helped to raise awareness of youth friendly services, and the learning in the youth programme can help to achieve more of a rights-based approach in the longer term.
In order both to go beyond information, addressing sex and sexuality in a non-biological more emotional way, and to analyse and address gender discrimination and power dynamics in the community further, the project needs time. The A+ project is providing learning to the broader youth programme and feeding into advocacy in both youth friendly services and comprehensive sexuality education (discussed in Johnson, V et al. 2013, Love, Sexual Rights and Young People, IPPF).
