In 2015, Youth LEAD launched Our Rights Matter Too : The SRHR study of Young Key Populations in Asia and the Pacific (download the study here). It highlights the inextricable link between SRHR and young key populations, and how the recognition, promotion and protection of these rights are instrumental to ending the AIDS epidemic in this region. Inline with the study findings, together with Y-PEER Asia and the Pacific, we are going to conduct the first Young Key Population SRHR E-Course. We intend to bridge the gap in the regional discourse on YKP and SRHR by increasing the conversation with youth activists, youth-led and youth-serving organizations.

We will use the Google Classroom as the platform of the e-course
How long does the e-course take to complete?
The e-course takes about 60 minutes/class. There will be 4 bi-weekly classes which will be completed in 2 months.
What are e-course’s topics ?
The e-course will provide an information about sexual and reproductive health and rights for young advocates and activists promoting young key populations’ rights and empowerment, especially at national and local levels. At the same time to open the discussion of the linkages between SRHR and HIV for YKPs, and positioning young key populations’ specific needs to realise their rights to well-being as recognised by the SRHR agenda.
