Summary
The framework presented in this document provides a set of concrete interventions or actions for policy-makers, programme managers and their partners to undertake in scaling up their responses to meet the sexual and reproductive health needs of young people. The framework has three major components that are based on the commonly accepted premise that, to practice lifestyles that lead to optimal sexual and reproductive health, young people need; (1) life-skills-based information and education; (2) access to reproductive health services that are receptive to them; and (3) a supportive and enabling environment.
