Youth Larc Statement

The Statement

Committing ourselves to full and informed choice of contraceptives for adolescents and youth

Global efforts to prevent unintended pregnancies and improve pregnancy spacing among adolescents and youth* will reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality, decrease rates of abortion, decrease HIV/STI incidence, improve nutritional status, keep girls in school and improve economic opportunities, and contribute toward reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. We recognize and commit ourselves and call upon all programs promoting the sexual and reproductive health and rights of adolescents and youth to ensure full and informed choice of contraceptives. “When we talk about ‘full access and full choice’ in regards to adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health and rights, we have to recognize that currently, nothing could be further than the truth. By not giving adolescents and youth sound, unbiased information and access to long-acting reversible contraception that can meet their needs, we are simply letting youth down.” - International Youth Alliance for Family Planning
