Youth

IPPF provided 76.8 million sexual and reproductive health services to young people in 2015. This represents 44% of total service provision and illustrates IPPF’s continued commitment to the largest-ever generation of young people. The most common types of services provided to young people in 2015 were contraceptive and HIV-related. In 2015, 45 Member Associations provided more than half of their services to young people.

To reach the most vulnerable groups of young people, IPPF invests in delivering comprehensive sexuality education in non-formal settings. In 2015, IPPF trained nearly half a million young peer educators who can design and lead sessions that are adapted to the needs and wants of the young people they reach. Their approaches to delivering the sessions are often more creative and engaging than those in formal settings.
