Adolescents and Youth SRHR


Share-Net Burkina Faso

CoP Overview and Introduction

The population of Burkina Faso is very young, with 65% of people are under 35 years of age. Adolescents and young people are faced by many challenges, among which are sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Many factors limit adolescents and young peoples ability to fully enjoy their SRHR, and they risk becoming vulnerable.

Institutional environments are related to a lack of knowledge, service quality and financial issues are obstacles for adolescents and young people to access SRHR. Adolescents and young people often don’t have access to good information and knowledge about SRHR, and other obstacles can be things like communicating about SRHR topics between parents and children. The consequences of different obstacles are a low-rate access to the use of contraceptive methods, unwanted pregnancies, child marriages, and clandestine abortions.

To face these obstacles, many policies are developed to account for adolescent and youth SRHR. Innovative approaches are implemented to improve SRHR, and learning platforms are often used. The development and sharing of SRHR knowledge through the interventions of organisations is a tactic used, and the adolescents and youth SRHR CoP is an opportunity to share and discuss the different experiences implemented by it’s members, and develop relevant knowledge products.
