Pacific Youth: Their Rights, Our Future

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

International News

On 5 December NZPPD launched a new report on adolescent sexual and reproductive health in the Pacific at the New Zealand parliament.

The report, Pacific Youth: Their Rights, Our Future is based on the findings of the Open Hearing on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Pacific, which the group held in June this year.

Governor Julie Soso, the first female governor to be elected in Papua New Guinea, and youth advocate Julianne Wickham from Solomon Islands were invited by NZPPD to speak at the launch, and both highlighted the difficulties young people face in their respective countries to accessing sexual and reproductive health care and services.

The report presents NZPPD’s recommendations on what immediate action needs to be taken to ensure adolescents can realise their sexual and reproductive rights.

The group’s work in the coming year will focus on encouraging the implementation of the recommendations in the region.
