This research report documents the multiple benefits of meaningful youth participation and leadership in sexual health and rights (SRHR) programs. It synthesizes global evidence from the field on how to foster authentic youth engagement, the impacts that result, and recommendations that can strengthen and scale this stream of programming investment.
sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)
It makes logical sense that integrating SRHR and HIV services should be cost effective and some studies have found clear efficiencies in the use of human resources for health (Integra and the Together4SRHR). However, evaluating cost effectiveness, and measuring funding flows is difficult given the interconnectedness of health systems.

The Guttmacher-Lancet Commission’s report lays out the scope of the unfinished sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) agenda; articulates a bold and evidence-based vision for SRHR that is grounded in human rights; provides an integrated, new definition of SRHR to guide this vision; and recommends a comprehensive package of essential SRHR interventions, going beyond the commonly recognized components of sexual and reproductive health.
The Prevention Access Campaign is a health equity initiative to end the dual epidemics of HIV and HIV-related stigma by empowering people with and vulnerable to HIV with accurate and meaningful information about their social, sexual, and reproductive health.
This report compiles the latest body of evidence on how stigma and discrimination create barriers across the HIV prevention, testing and treatment cascades and reduce the impact of the AIDS response. The report also brings together best practices on confronting stigma and discrimination, providing a valuable resource for programme managers, policy-makers, health-care providers and communities.

The case for integrated human papillomavirus vaccine and HIV prevention with broader sexual and reproductive health and rights services for adolescent girls and young women
Integrated, multidisciplinary responses are increasingly critical from economic, political and health systems perspectives; piecemeal approaches leave too many gaps in the elements left unaddressed. A strengthened focus on SRHR/HIV integrated healthcare service delivery can support the achievement of joint health outcomes and goes beyond a single disease to represent a more holistic perspective.
