Recommendations
  • The Ministry of Health should update the Sexual and Reproductive Health Policy of 2002 to include an SRH policy directed to young people and their specific SRHR needs. The set of policies and programs concerning young people’s sexual and reproductive health should incorporate: the recognition of young people’s right to be included in the decision-making of SRH policies and programs, the recognition of the specific sexual health and/or reproductive health needs of LGBTI youth, and the recognition of the specific sexual health and/or reproductive health needs of young people living with disabilities. 

    The Ministry of Health must develop a national document that establishes priorities and strategies to ensure access to youth-friendly SRH services, including specific guidelines/protocols, and policies that ensure SRH services for young people. These priorities and strategies should address accessibility, acceptability, quality, and the specific needs of adolescents within the population of young people.
