A global study by Rutgers found that the pandemic has a detrimental effect on young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights and worsens existing inequalities.

The study was held in 2020, after the first initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost 2,700 young people from Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda and Zimbabwe responded in an online survey. Harder to reach communities, such as young LGBTQI+ people or people with disabilities, participated in focus group discussions, to ensure their perspectives were also taken into account.
