The thematic segment provides an opportunity for the PCB to discuss the need for national programmes that holistically address the needs of young people in all their diversity, especially young women, young key populations and young people living with HIV. It will highlight the role of the education sector as an entry point for promoting comprehensive sexuality education – including HIV knowledge and awareness, prevention, testing and treatment, and ending stigma and discrimination. It will also emphasize the importance of linkages to youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services and social protection services.
