Harare, SAFAIDS, 2014

This booklet has been reproduced under the SAfAIDS SCORE project which aims to improve access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) by young people in southern Africa, with a special focus on mining, farming and religious communities.

If you are a young person, you can use this booklet to learn more about how the African Youth Charter, or AYC,(and your own country’s Constitution) and the IPPF Sexual Rights Declaration protect you and your SRHR to help keep you healthier and safer– and to understand your responsibilities both to yourself and to others. Check if your government has signed up to these commitments and if so, what progress your government has made in achieving these rights. If they haven’t signed up, advocate for them to sign up!
