The State of Pacific Youth 2005

Published on


UNICEF Pacific, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the UNFPA Office for the Pacific take this opportunity to present the State of Pacific Youth report 2005, initiated as collaborative effort to reflect the new partnership between the three agencies on Adolescent Health and Development. With 1.2 billion people in the world between the ages of 10 and 19 and more than half the world’s population under the age of 25, all three agencies work to ensure that adolescents in the Pacific region have opportunities to develop holistically through access to information, education and services necessary to address the reproductive health needs of young people and to develop life skills to make responsible decisions in life and reduce vulnerability to HIV/AIDS.
