We are capable of making the right decisions over our own lives

"As young people need to be in charge of our own health because we know what is best for us and we are capable of making the right decisions over our own lives." Joyce Ouma works for the Global Network of Young People living with HIV, also known as Y+ Global. Young people should take lead when it comes to their sexual and reproductive health and rights. "We have the power." Period. Check out Joyce's message to policy makers worldwide in this powerful video below!

"We know our own issues and individual needs that no one else knows of"

"Hello, my name is Joyce Ouma, I work for the Global Network of Young People living with HIV, also known as Y+ Global. I believe that as young people we need to be in charge of our own lives and lead the change because we have the power. We have the autonomy over our own bodies, our own health and our own lives. We know what is best for us and we are capable of making the right decisions over our own lives. Most importantly, we know and understand our own issues and our own individual needs that no one else knows of. Thank you."
