I am the Voice of 43%

Going to represent India as Founder & CEO of Green Youth Generation and Ambassador of TUNZA Eco-Generation at ICPD Global Youth Forum.

Chosen by International Steering committee of ICPD beyond 2014 Secretariat.

The United Nation Population Fund is committed to supporting the achievement of the ICPD agenda in all member countries The ICPD Programme of Action recognizes the needs of young people, particularly girls, as key to safeguard their rights and to achieve sustainable development.

Given the recognized benefits of investing in young people and fulfilling their reproductive health needs and rights, UNFPA in collaboration with Ministry of Health and Family welfare (MOHFW) and with the support of other government ministries, has organized a series of four consultations focusing on communication media for young people.

The outcome of these consultations will culminate in development of the Adolescent Health Strategy by articulating the needs of adolescents and the possible ways of addressing their needs through programme of the MOHFW or integrating adolescent health concerns in programmes of other Ministries in the next Five Year Plan and UNFPA's Country Programme (2013-2017) alike.
