As part of ACT!2015, a global youth initiative led by The PACT and national youth alliances (representing 13 countries), with support from UNAIDS, young people are committing to establish youth-led and data-driven accountability mechanisms in focus countries for young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights through indicator advocacy, evidence gathering, communications and global exchange and visibility. As a result, youth partners will develop national indicator advocacy roadmaps, create national databases and translate data into communication packages for advocacy, and facilitate global exchange across countries and regions at high-level and politically strategic meetings. The phase of this initiative starts September 2015 and closes December 2017. As a result, we expect to find: increased visibility and recognition of youth‐led accountability at national, regional and global meetings; effective global, regional and national coordination and coherence across youth organisations; governments adopt policies and provide resources for SRHR and HIV that are youth responsive, including comprehensive sexuality education and youth friendly services; and, national‐youth led accountability mechanisms are adopted into national level governance structures for monitoring and implementation of the SDGs.
