There is need for strengthening support and protection for sexual exploitation and violence, access to friendly Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) information and service networks; key programs targeting young people especially girls to gain skills and to be able to withstand pressure and ensure access to affordable Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights services.
