|Red Latinoamericana y Caribeña de Jóvenes por los Derechos Sexuales y Reproductivos-RedLac|
(Latin American and Caribbean Youth Network for Sexual and Reproductive Rights)Founded in 1999, REDLAC is a youth-led and youth-managed network that promotes and protects adolescents' sexual and reproductive rights across Latin America and the Caribbean. REDLAC brings together 15 organizations from 14 countries to share youth concerns and perspectives at global and regional meetings.
REDLAC has taken the lead in bringing existing resources on young people’s sexual and reproductive rights and health to Spanish-speaking audiences. For example, REDLAC translated into Spanish IWHC’s publication Positively Informed, which is a compilation of lesson plans for educators and program managers on creating comprehensive sexuality education programs.
REDLAC is also a part of the Latin American Consortium for Emergency Contraception (CLAE), the Campaign for an Inter-American Convention on Sexual and Reproductive Rights, and the September 28th Campaign to Decriminalize Abortion in Latin America and the Caribbean. IWHC has supported REDLAC since its inception.
