  3. 3. 10 DOA 2012, THEMEA. Background on 10 Days of ActivismIn 2010, the 10 Days of Activism (10DoA) was conceived and organized by the Youth Peer Education Network(Y-PEER). It was planned during Y-PEER’s participation in the International Year of Youth [IYY] Strategy Meetingwith several other youth organizations.The first 10DoA was organized between 1st and 10th December 2010 and more than 25 national networksparticipated. Countries ranged from Middle East, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, East Africa and Asia Pacific. Thesecond10DoA was between the 1st and the -10th of July 2011 and centered around the call on decision makersaround the globe to “Turn commitments into actions”.In 2011, the campaign reached 10340 young people from 31 countries all over the world.While the youth activists were mobilizing their peers to take action in their countries, Y-PEER Internationalbrought together mobilized youth activists within their own country and was brought their voices toregional/international levels via through social media. Social media, like Twitter, Face book and the Y-PEERwebsites, were used by young people to post photos, and youth video messages in differentcountries/languages. A joint statement was developed and later on translated into different languages fordistribution at national levels during the 10 DofA campaign.Based on the social media response and country level activities, it was clear that the campaign created a strongsynergy among young people from all the participating countries to work together and unite to achieve theirgoal. This unity allowed for the opportunity to partner with more organizations at the local level. This localactivism translated to a greater enthusiasm and understanding of how to bring their voices to both thenational/international. 3
  4. 4. The 2012 10 DoAwas a platform for youth organizations and young people from many diverse countries toraise their voices on youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights needs and remind governments to takeaction on the committed issuesin agreement with the Youth Rights Strategy implemented by the youthcoalition and supported by United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The momentum of the event was largelycontributed from the previous year’s enthusiasm and the activists’ recognition of Y-PEER as a strong network.Therefore, in 10 DoA2012 we will organize several activities in approximately 50 countries between 1st-10thSeptember 2012 to have mutual dialogues with our governments on their youth SEXUAL ANDREPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS commitments, organize activities ranging from street actions to trainings,and raise awareness on youth SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS issues in our respectivecommunities.All of these activities will be shared and promoted through social media to attract international attention tolocal actions.10 DoA outreach and advocacy campaign to engage young people and raise their voices all around the worldabout their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Aiming to strengthen young people’s capacities at thenational level to advocate for their sexual and reproductive rights among their peers and policy makers.GOAL AND OBJECTIVES OF THE 10 DOA 2012 Goal:Mobilizing youth organizations and youth activist to advocate for rights-based youth centered developmentagenda at national and global level. Objectives: •Mobilize young people from 50 countries to organize community based actions towards rights – based youth centered development agenda. •Strengthen cooperation within youth SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS groups in order to bring grass root activism to international attention. •Highlight at least 30 youth led actions that are advancing rights-based youth centered SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS development agenda through local community channels and social media. •Mobilizing young people to contact decision makers in their communities in at least 30 countries to lobby for rights-based youth centered development agenda.b. Theme of the campaign “Nothing for us, without us”We were born with the right of meaningful participation in all the decision-making process and bodiesfrom the start to the finish line, and to act only as recipients! 4
  5. 5. 10 DoA will emphasize the theme that youth should be centralto the global development agenda. However this should be done with us and not for us. In this method, youth will be able to: make the decisions, take active roles in all phases of decisionmaking that affects our lives,and enter leadership roles to address and promote the issues that matter for us including sexual and reproductive health and rights.c. Data on young people related to theme Young people make up almost half of the world’s 7 billion population (with 1.2 billion between the ages of 10 and 19)1 In 2009, youth aged 15 to 24 years accounted for 41% of all new adult HIV infections. In 2009, about 5 million young people were living with HIV worldwide, with 76% living in sub- Saharan Africa2 About 16 million girls aged 15 to 19 years give birth every year - roughly 11% of all births worldwide.3 In 2008, 21.6 million unsafe abortions occurred worldwide, more than 95% of them in Africa and Latin America.4 Estimates show that 215 million women worldwide need family planning methods services that limit or space childbearing. 5 This unmet need for family planning is even higher among young people, many of whom are just entering their childbearing years.6 Annually, some 47,000 women & girls die due to complications of unsafe abortion (about 13% of maternal deaths). 7 The United Nations defines violence against women as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or mental harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in1* Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs in its WorldPopulation Prospects: The 2010 Revision.2* Global Interagency Task Team on HIV and young people. 2011.

It is one of the guiding principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that has been reiterated in many other Conventions and Declarations. Through active participation, young people are empowered to play a vital role in their own development as well as in that of their communities, helping them to learn vital life-skills, develop knowledge on human rights and citizenship and to promote positive civic action. To participate effectively, young people must be given the proper tools, such as education about and access to their civil rights. The international community has reaffirmed its commitment to youth participation through UN General Assembly resolution 58/133, which reiterates the “importance of the full and effective participation of youth and youth organizations at the local, national, regional and international levels in promoting and implementing the World Programme of Action and in evaluating the progress achieved and the obstacles encountered in its implementation”10d. DefinitionsIn order to define and come up with equal understanding of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SEXUALAND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS) issues we will use the following definitions. All definitions are takenwithin the WHO framework definitions.Reproductive healthThe International Conference on Population and Development defined reproductive health very broadly, goingfar beyond the absence of disease or infirmity:“Within the framework of the World Health Organizations (WHO) definition of health as a state of completephysical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, reproductive health,or sexual health/hygiene, addresses the reproductive processes, functions and system at all stages of life.Reproductive health, therefore, implies that people are able to have a responsible, satisfying and safer sex lifeand that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so.Implicit in this are the right of men and women to be informed of and to have access to safe, effective,affordable and acceptable methods of birth control of their choice; and the right of access to appropriatehealth care services of sexual and reproductive medicine that will enable women to go safely throughpregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant.”8 * World Health Organization.

  7. 7. Sexual healthSexual health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positiveand respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurableand safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.Reproductive rightsReproductive rights rest on the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely andresponsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have the information and means to do so,and the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health. They also include the right of allto make decisions concerning reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence.Young PeopleYouth, according to WHO definition, are people between 15 and 24 years of age. However, each region orcountry might have their own specific definition of youth.e. SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS timeline11Many of the agreements in the timeline below confirm the vision of the mandate adopted at the InternationalConference on Population and Development, which was held in Cairo in 1994.1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights1968 Tehran Conference on Human Rights proclaims and declares the right of individuals and couples to information, access and choice to determine the number and spacing of their children.1974 The World Population Plan of Action adopted at the 1974 World Population Conference in Bucharest, and the 88 recommendations for its further implementation approved at the1984 International Conference on Population in Mexico City in 1984.1976 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights adopted in 1966 and entered into force in 1976. Article 12 of the Covenant recognized the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.1979 The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) provides the basis for realizing equality between women and men by ensuring womens equal access to, and equal opportunities in, political and public life -- including the right to vote and to stand for election -- as well as education, health and employment1993 United Nations World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna confirmed that women’s rights were human rights11 UNFPA 7
  8. 8. 1994 At the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, 179 governments agreed that population and development are inextricably linked, and that empowering women and meeting peoples needs for education and health, including reproductive health, are necessary for both individual advancement and balanced development. The conference adopted a 20-year Programme of Action, which focused on individuals needs and rights, rather than on achieving demographic targets. Advancing gender equality, eliminating violence against women and ensuring womens ability to control their own fertility were acknowledged as cornerstones of population and development policies. Concrete goals of the ICPD centred on providing universal access to education, particularly for girls; reducing infant, child and maternal deaths; and ensuring universal access by 2015 to reproductive health care, including family planning, assisted childbirth and prevention of sexually transmitted infections including HIV.1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women1999 Key Actions for the Further Implementation of the ICPD2000 The Millenium Declaration2001 The Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), including MDG 5 on maternal health2004 The 57th World Health Assembly, which adopted the World Health Organization’s first strategy on reproductive health.2005 World Summit in 2005, during which world leaders committed to universal access to reproductive health by 2015, to promote gender equality and end discrimination against women.2010 MDG/10 Review Summit, when world leaders renewed their commitment to universal access to reproductive health by 2015 and promote gender equality and end discrimination against women.WHAT ABOUT YOUTH PARTICIPATION?Youth participation has been included and highlighted by several international declarations, such as The UnitedNations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) developed in 1989, the Programme of Action (PoA)developed during the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994, the Declarationof Commitment on HIV and AIDS developed during the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV 12and AIDS (UNGASS on HIV and AIDS) in 2001, and the World Programme of Action for Youth adopted in 2010 .12 Fact sheet CPD 2012 8
  9. 9. ADVOCACY/COMMUNICATION a. Key issuesWe as Young people need to be recognized as equal participants of decision-making process, especially when itcomes to issues related to our health and well being. Many of the youth programs, documents and policies aredeveloped without youth involvement.In the cases in which there is some involvement it is typically not asequal participants. Under the 10 DoA campaign we promote meaningful youth participation in decision makingemphasizing on the opportunity for us to be actively involved and contribute in planning, implementation andevaluation processes. The 10 DoA is platform to be recognized and address our SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVEHEALTH AND RIGHTS needs to decision makers at national and international levels.We strongly believe that in-time provided comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) are necessary to beinformed, skilled and remain protected from risky behavior. Many youth in different countries face traditionaland cultural barriers to qualified SRH information and services. Additionally, young people endure resistance torecognition of their SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS needs and accessing to basic servicesdue to existing community foundations.Providing with proper information in-time, particularly in thetransitional stage, further shapes behavior and attitude to health issues. There needs to be Youth FriendlyServices (YFS) in order to fully satisfy youth SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS. YFS is acomprehensive approach contributing to meet youth SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS needs.Having all these in mind, we suggest the following key issues to be reflected under the theme of the campaign: Meaningful youth participation Comprehensive sexuality education Youth friendly health servicesThese key issues should be core ideas for planned activities at national and international level. Theprioritization of key issues could be different according to country specificity and cultural aspects. b. MessagesBelow are sample of the messages that will be promoting during the campaign related to the three areas offocus , they will be developed further based on the countries priorities and needs by the beginning of Augustafter selecting the joining countries We Demand Meaningful Youth Participation With half of the world’s population under the age of 25, we call our leaders from around the world to engage us as valuable partners in decision making bodies and processes that affect our SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS Meaningful youth participation is involving us as partners from the start to finish not only as recipients We Demand Comprehensive Sexuality Education 9
  10. 10. Each day, 2400 more young people are infected with HIV7 and more than half of all new STI infections (180,000 million) are among youth 13also About 2.5 million adolescents have unsafe abortions each year, often with complications more serious than those experienced by older women.14 This rise as an urgent need to address young people’s need for comprehensive sexuality education ; We demand the right to have access to Comprehensive Sexuality Education. This will prepare us fully enjoy our sexual life, have comprehensive knowledge about our body and sexuality and protect ourselves from unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections including HIV. We Demand Youth Friendly Health Services We want accessible, free or affordable, non-judgmental, confidential, comprehensive sexual and reproductive health information and services with no required parental consent. Accessibility includes services that are highly promoted; open at convenient times, communicated in easily understandable language with low literacy materials, in a flexible and convenient location. c.
