There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 10 and 19 in the world today–the largest generation of adolescents ever. Around the world, strong and dynamic youth movements are gaining momentum—and so are their human rights and social justice agendas. From Nigeria to Peru, young people are securing access to comprehensive sexuality education and reproductive health care, and engaging with policymakers locally, nationally, and internationally.
Our resources on youth health and rights include factsheets on comprehensive sexuality education, exemplary curricula, and reports about the impact of HIV, violence, and other factors on the health and rights of young people.

Across the African subcontinent, almost 60 percent of those living with HIV/AIDS are girls and women. In South Africa, women are dying at such a rate that the entire gender balance is being altered—from near parity to a ratio of 120 males to every 100 females. The implications of the feminization of AIDS are huge—for caregiving, the health and wholeness of families, social stability, policies and programs.

President Bush's announcement of a $15 billion effort to fight HIV/AIDS in the worst affected countries may seem like a huge windfall, but when you witness the staggering impact of the disease on these countries, $15 billion starts to look more like a drop in the bucket.

Editor's Note: The following is a commentary. The opinions expressed are those of the author and not necessarily the views of Women's eNews.
Many concerned citizens saw President Bush's move blocking the United States' $34 million contribution to the United Nations Population Fund last July as yet another attack on abortion. But his actions then and since have revealed a much broader anti-woman agenda, one that is threatening women's health, human rights and equality in the United States and worldwide.
