The Issue   Taking Action   Results
Youth (age 15-24) account for   40%
of all new HIV infections.
Every day 2,400   youth become infected with HIV.
5 million   youth aged 15-24 are living with HIV.
But young people, especially those most affected by HIV, are often unable to access sexual and reproductive health services.
More than 50% of sexually active young women aged
15-19 years have unmet need for
modern contraceptives.

Link Up worked with 10-24 year-olds most affected by HIV in Bangladesh, Burundi, Ethiopia, Myanmar and Uganda.
