what
we do

CHOICE supports young people to voice and claim their own sexual rights. We do so by enabling young people to meaningfully participate and advocate for these rights on different policy levels. Together with young people from all over the world we lobby and advocate, build youth leadership and strengthen our connections with the global movement on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).

Why we
are needed

All young people worldwide should be able to explore, experience and express their sexualities in healthy, pleasurable and safe ways. This is only possible when young people’s sexual rights are guaranteed and respected. Yet for many young people this still is not a reality.

YOUTH BETWEEN THE AGES OF 15 AND 24 HAVE THE HIGHEST RATES OF STI’S.
