The ASTRA Youth report presenting the situation of young people concerning sexual and reproductive health and rights issues in the Astra Youth countries
In May 2006, ASTRA-Youth concluded a research done in 11 countries from Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans. In average, 50 young people (between 16 and 30 years old) were interviewed in each country. The research focussed on the knowledge and attitudes of Youth towards Sexual and Reproductive Health issues in their countries. In addition, a cross cultural analysis of the data provided a clear picture of the commonalities and differences in attitudes and needs, giving the opportunity to share best practices and materials amongst participating countries. This experience will lead to strengthened ties in the field of SRHR as a secondary output. The countries, which provided data and analysis are: Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Georgia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia and Poland.
