Times Square, New York. On 23rd September thousands of commuters and tourists in Times Square watched as the faces of young women from all over the world lit up a billboard accompanied by the message: ‘I Decide’.
The billboard broadcast is part of the ‘I Decide’ campaign which is demanding that sexual and reproductive health and rights are put at the heart of the new development framework.
Women are at the heart of every nation's future was the recurring message at an event organized by the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the Government of Japan and the Ethiopian Ministry of Health ahead of the International Conference on Family Planning in Addis Ababa.
This issue from the Learning from innovation series brings together lessons from three projects that successfully addressed factors which make a particular group of young people vulnerable in the local context. Implemented in Bangladesh, Tunisia and Ethiopia, each project developed strategies to empower young people and their communities to better protect the sexual and reproductive health of young people and enable them to make choices to improve their lives.
