Youth and adolescents have limited access to quality information on SRHR. The magnitude of the knowledge gap lies in poor awareness campaigns and knowledge-sharing initiatives. Side by side, SRHR education is crippled by weak policies and socio-cultural stigmata affecting the overall mindset of youth in the country.
Keeping that in mind, United Nations Youth Advisory Panel Bangladesh together with its’ partners Y-PEER Asia Pacific Center are going to conduct the 1st National E-course on SRHR and Young People.
Late Adolescents & Youth (aged 16-29 years) will be brought under the initiative to create a healthy society aware of their Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), mindful of their mental health, Gender Equality, Mental Health, Adolescent Friendly Services, Universal Health Coverage, SRHR in Humanitarian Crises & Climate Change, Cyberbullying, Online Safety and Privacy and alike.
