UHC with and for Young People in the MENA Region

In many Arab States in the MENA region, youth-friendly health services have been provided for several years, operated thanks to partnership between the organizations and youth. This concurrent session will  demonstrate  a successful example of advocating for youth-friendly health services, drawing on the experience of The Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS) and Y-PEER Network. The session will showcase the importance of peer education within mobile clinics as well as university health centers, both of which improve accessibility to sexual and reproductive health and rights and help mitigate the negative norms and factors that impede young people’s access to SRHR. The session will also engage audience participants in a lively discussion to highlight the challenges and opportunities related to applying this model to other contexts. This session is convened by Palestinian Medical Relief Society; Y-PEER - Palestine, Tunisia, Morocco, Syria.

TIME 11:00 - 12:30 EAT
