The changing world of adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights
The world in which adolescents live has changed dramatically in the last 25 years and the response to their sexual and reproductive health and rights has evolved in important ways.
A new supplement in the Journal of Adolescent Health celebrates gains, confronts barriers, and identifies key areas of action for countries and key stakeholders to build on progress in the critical decade ahead. The four published articles were developed by technical teams at WHO and UNFPA, along with governments, academia, civil society, and funding organizations.
They were co-authored by young people from six regions around the world. In this video the six young coauthors of the paper have put together the key messages they took away from the four articles and would like to share.
Systematic review on peer education on sexual and reproductive health directed at young people in India
In May 2020, the Journal of Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters published our systematic review titled: A systematic review of the evidence on peer education programmes for promoting the sexual and reproductive health of young people in India.
The key messages of our review are that both the content and the delivery of peer education on sexual and reproductive health directed at young people in India vary greatly; there is little attention to quality in designing and delivering peer education; and the outcomes of peer education initiatives are mixed.

In May 2020, the Journal of Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters published our systematic review titled: A systematic review of the evidence on peer education programmes for promoting the sexual and reproductive health of young people in India:
In April 2020, the Journal of Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters published the above commentary which was in response to a paper published in the Lancet last year entitled: “Progress in adolescent health and well-being: tracking 12 headline indicators for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2016” (Peter Azzopardi et al, 2019).
In March 2020, I tweeted a call to young people worldwide by WHO’s Director General Tedros Gebreyesus:

In July 2020, I tweeted a similar call to young people in the USA by a leading infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci:

The Palgrave Handbook of Critical Menstruation Studies
This open access handbook, the first of its kind, provides a comprehensive and carefully curated multidisciplinary genre-spanning view of the state of the field of Critical Menstruation Studies, opening up new directions in research and advocacy.
It is animated by the central question: ‘“what new lines of inquiry are possible when we center our attention on menstrual health and politics across the life course?” The chapters—diverse in content, form and perspective—establish Critical Menstruation Studies as a potent lens that reveals, complicates and unpacks inequalities across biological, social, cultural and historical dimensions. This handbook is an unmatched resource for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and activists new to and already familiar with the field as it rapidly develops and expands.
