La Red TV de Rivera reported on 4 July that local authorities were preparing a plan to promote family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention among young people. Rivera is a Uruguayan city located along the border with the Brazilian city of Santana do Livramento (together forming a city of almost 300,000 inhabitants). Rhe Brazilian NGO Reprolatina, with UNFPA’s support, was to replicate similar experiences already ongoing in Brazil. Interviewed by la Red, Valeria Ramos, UNFPA sexual and reproductive health officer, explained the advances in the project and the interest of UNFPA to guarantee that every Rivera young person’s potential is fulfilled. In doing so, she added, it is mandatory to guarantee that they receive high-quality information and education on sexual and reproductive health at the same time that the health centres operate youth-friendly services.
The Jakarta Post on 4 July reported that, "Despite its stated commitment to supporting the UN Population Fund’s (UNFPA) reproductive health programs, the government is making little effort to promote young people’s access to quality sexual and reproductive health services." Jose Ferraris, UNFPA's Indonesia representative and Nisrina Nadhifah Rahman, a member of the UNFPA’s Youth Advisory Panel are both quoted in the article. Read in English: Jakarta Post
