CTI Exchange Youth Council Featured on Family Planning Podcast
The Inside the FP Story podcast was developed by the Knowlege SUCCESS project with the family planning workforce, for the family planning workforce. Season 6 was created in partnership with FHI 360 and explores the larger context of sexual and reproductive health (or SRH) beyond family planning. Episode 2 of the season specifically examines Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health, or AYSRH.
According to a recent initiative called “The Future of Sex Ed,” one in four youth globally have never received any formal sexuality education. Beyond this, females are 2.4 times more likely to be unsatisfied with this education than their male peers, and non-binary youth are 3.6 times more likely to be unsatisfied than their cisgender peers. Clearly there is something missing from standard approaches to SRH and FP information for youth. For this episode, the podcast featured the voices of members of the Contraceptive Technology Innovation (or CTI) Exchange Youth Council, including Danita Matthew from the US, Isadora Bittar from Brazil, and Sarah Joseph and Barrack Onyango Gumba from Kenya.
