Empowering young people
Running in Colombia, Togo and Ghana between 2019-2021, the programme uses best practices in comprehensive sexuality education and youth-friendly services to support the lives of young people.
It also develops these Centres of Excellence, to share expertise and knowledge with other organisations, institutions, peer educators, activists and government decision-makers. This supports them to deliver and scale-up quality sex education and address the challenges of providing this to so many people.
Over 200,000 sexual and reproductive health services were provided to young people in the programme’s first year. The aim is to steadily increase this reach by extending comprehensive sexuality education to all young people in these countries.
Wider regional impact
The programme’s goals reach way beyond Colombia, Togo and Ghana. The Centres of Excellence are a unique opportunity to gather knowledge and technical expertise.
The Centres are regional hubs, accelerating knowledge sharing and technical cooperation and assistance. They spread their experience and thought leadership on sexual and reproductive health and rights throughout Latin America and Africa.
