Prioritizing young people in the post-2015agenda, call for endorsements

As activists engaged in advocacy surrounding young people, young people living with and affected by HIV, and sexual and reproductive health and rights, we encourage GYCA members and allies to join us in signing on to a letter we recently signed on to as part of the Link Up project.

Young people, and especially young people from the most marginalized groups whose voices are often not represented at the UN, must be included in the new post-2015 development goals. We want to change that!

In advance of and parallel to high-level events and meetings in New York*, it is imperative that civil society and government express the importance of prioritizing young people, especially those most marginalized and stigmatized, in the post-2015 agenda.

We hope you can and will join us in this effort.  Please lend your organization’s support for the letter (accessible here) by March 28th as we will re-release this statement for the Commission on Population and Development. Stand with us and send your organization’s endorsement to: [email protected].

Thank you in advance for your time and support,

Policy partners of the Link Up consortium:

International HIV/AIDS Alliance

Stop AIDS Alliance


Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS
