International Youth Day 2013

August 12, 2013, is International Youth Day (IYD), and this year’s theme is Youth Migration: Moving Development Forward.

On August 12, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) will engage with partners and particularly young people in the U.S. and across the world to reiterate our commitment to supporting young people’s access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education and services, and to make this the healthiest generation ever.

For more information on Planned Parenthood’s work with young people in Africa and Latin America, check out our fact sheet “Empowering Youth Around the World.” As part of this year’s theme, the UN will release the World Youth Report 2013 on Youth Migration and Development.
