Based on an analysis of the underlying causes of this problem, the partnership strives for the protection, respect and fulfillment of young people’s SRHR, including girls, young women and young lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender, and intersex (LGBTI). Specific attention is given to: freedom from stigma, discrimination and violence; access to comprehensive youth-friendly services; access to comprehensive information; and space for young people’s voices.
Advocacy is at the basis of how the partnership expects desired change to happen in a particular context. A more progressive and inclusive collaboration of CSOs in national SRHR advocacy partnerships/platforms can be instrumental to strengthen advocacy for SRHR services and information, including, but not limited to sexuality education.
The RHRN platform in Nepal consists of 15 civil society organizations, including a host organization, YUWA, which is serving as the platform secretariat. The work of the organizations are focused on improving sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of young people in Nepal.
YUWA is a not for profit, youth run and youth led organization working to promote youth participation through empowerment and advocacy.
