Abstract
Realising the importance of South-South cooperation and collaboration, ICOMP engaged itself in a short project on Capacity Enhancement Utilising South-South Modalities, which consists of four components, namely: (i) Inter-linkages between population dynamics and development in national planning; (ii) Assessing capacity enhancement needs and database on possible assistance providers for 2010 round of population census; (iii) Assessing institutional capacity for reducing maternal mortality and morbidity; and (iv) Improving access of young people to education and services for sexual and reproductive health, HIV and gender.
The objectives of the project were to create a pool of resources for technical assistance, documenting best practices and sharing of experiences for enhancing regional capacities using South-South modalities. This project was funded by the Asia and the Pacific Regional Office (APRO), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
This publication on Improving Access of Young People to Education and Services for Sexual and Reproductive Health, HIV and Gender: Promising Practices in Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam is a result of the fourth component: Improving access of young people to education and services for sexual and reproductive health, HIV and gender.
This publication documents promising practices of adolescent sexual and reproductive health in three selected countries in the Southeast Asia – Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam – using the UNFPA Framework for Action on Adolescents and Youth as guidelines. The promising practices can be utilised to set the stage for possible South-South collaboration to improve access of young people to sexual and reproductive health, gender-based violence prevention services, and gender-sensitive life-skills based sexual and reproductive health education as part of a multi-cultural approach to the development of young people.
We wish to express special thanks to the Asia and the Pacific Regional Office of UNFPA for financial support and guidance.
