Join us as #NextGenerationIsNow partners pass the mic to young sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) champions from around the globe.
Let’s be clear: young people’s voices, perspectives, and lived experiences need to be at the forefront of any discussions about the health care and policies that affect their lives. For this event during UNGA and in celebration of World Contraception Day, young SRHR champions will discuss why #WeStillNeed access to contraception and essential SRHR, especially during a global pandemic.
This event will be available in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
