This year, UNFPA, in the “International Youth Day” will hold a series of activities highlighting the importance of the youth in the welfare of their families, communities and the nation as a whole. Young people, unlike the general belief, are not the problem, on the contrary, they are the solution. Essential to this is the implementation and respect of the rights of youth to participate in political, economic and social life in the communities where they live and have the opportunity to take free decisions being well-informed related to their body, sexuality and reproduction free of discrimination, violence or conflicts; this by promoting the importance of their access to education, health services, including sexual and reproductive health, and family planning. Special attention during the campaign is given to teenage girls. A 10 years old girl today, will be an adult – a woman and possibly a mother – in 2030. We have the obligation to enable this transition so the future to be better for her, her community and the whole world – it can certainly be achieved through supporting their rights, providing opportunities and keeping promises.
