- Young people have access to a range of quality sexual and reproductive health and HIV services.
- Legal barriers to young people’s participation and access to services are removed.
- Communities uphold the rights of young people living with HIV and young key populations and counter stigma and discrimination.
- Young people are supported to participate in all aspects of decision-making ethically and meaningfully.
- Young migrant and cross-border communities are prioritized.
