Fulfil! A Guidance Document for the Implementation of Young People’s Sexual Rights
This resource is published by the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
With a comprehensive view of young people’s sexual rights, the document includes issues related to the diversity of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics among young people; and specific recommendations related to young LGBTI people.
Translating the sexual rights of young people into practice not only involves raising awareness among young people for them to claim their rights, but working with duty bearers, such as health providers, educators and policymakers for them to fulfil these rights in law and in services. As adolescence is a time of gradually gaining responsibilities, implementing the rights of adolescents specifically involves a dynamic process of striking a balance between protecting them while respecting their autonomy and promoting their empowerment.
Fulfil! was written with the input of a large group of experts from the human rights, sexual and reproductive health and youth communities. It addresses critical opportunities to implement young people’s sexual rights in a global context and provides specific guidance for policy makers, health providers and educators.Download PDF
