Meeting of Youth Leaders in the Caribbean
Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago, Tower D
The Meeting of Youth Leaders will allow for in-depth discussion of sexual health issues affecting young people, identify what they view as barriers to their access to sexual health services, as well as identify what knowledge and tools they require to protect themselves from HIV.
The meeting provides an opportunity to solicit the input required for developing a framework for regional advocacy on key sexual health issues affecting youth and to inform subsequent training to strengthen advocacy skills of regional youth leaders. This would enable youth to work towards a more coherent and holistic approach to issues affecting youth from key populations and young people living with HIV and for their strengthened inclusion in the regional and national responses.
