Commitment to Action

Creating the Healthiest Generation Ever

Commitment by

Planned Parenthood Federation Of America, Inc.

In 2012, Planned Parenthood Federation of America committed to combat the vulnerability of youth to unintended pregnancy, unsafe abortion, HIV/AIDS and other STDs, and cultural taboos around age and sexuality, by empowering a cadre of youth leaders and peer providers in the U.S., Africa, and Latin America. With six new partners in Africa and three new partners in Latin America, Planned Parenthood Global will train Youth Peer Providers in basic contraceptive counseling and prepare them to provide clients (friends, classmates, and acquaintances) with consistent access to modern pregnancy and STD prevention methods, including contraceptive pills and condoms, and injectables. In the U.S., Planned Parenthood Global will sponsor two global youth fellowship programs and a national youth organizing strategy to build the capacity of the next generation to fight for stronger investments in global health, including women's and young people's access to sexual and reproductive health care.
