Adolescent girls and young women in low- and middle-income countries face many obstacles to realising and exercising their sexual and reproductive health rights. Girl- and youth-led organisations – because of their proximity to communities and nuanced understanding of the challenges those communities face – are increasingly seen as a vital entry point for reaching adolescent girls and promoting sexual and reproductive health services and rights. However, the exact role that such groups play in advancing these outcomes, and the impact they are able to have on girls’ and young women’s sexual and reproductive health and well-being, are not yet well understood. To address this evidence gap, this report presents findings on the contributions and challenges facing girl- and youth-led organisations working on sexual and reproductive health and rights across a range of contexts in the Global South.
