On July 11th, world leaders will gather at the London Summit on Family Planning to talk about the 220 million women around the world who can’t get modern contraceptives when they need them. As members of the largest global youth cohort in history, let’s make sure this groundbreaking initiative doesn’t leave young people out of the picture!
We believe every country should have an action plan for providing contraception and reproductive health services—and youth should be included.
We believe legal, cultural, and social barriers to accessing family planning must be removed so young people can realize their true potential.
We believe that with access to education and accurate information, young people can make informed and independent decisions about their sexual and reproductive health.
We believe that all young people have the right to access the contraceptive methods they want at prices they can afford.
Most importantly, we believe young people should be at the table during discussions about their reproductive health and their futures.
For those of us signing this letter, it’s pretty straightforward: youth should be included in this global family planning movement.
