Young people, including young people living with HIV, often lack access to sexuality information and services. Policies are often not well aligned to the reality of young people. Young people aren’t always aware of their rights. This hinders their access to sexuality education and there is a lack of youth friendly health services. Therefore, young people are often unable to make informed choices concerning their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), with all the consequences that that entails.
