    In many countries and regions of the world, young people (ages 10-24) experience early marriage followed directly by pressure to bear children, making young married women (YMW) a cohort with particularly high fertility rates, high unmet need for contraception, and high rates of closely spaced pregnancies. Young married women and first-time parents (FTPs) face a unique set of challenges to living healthy sexual and reproductive lives—challenges that are different to those faced by unmarried adolescents, older married women or older parents.

Vaginal microbicides are intended as an HIV prevention option for women that, unlike male condoms, would not require negotiation with a partners. Rectal microbicides could be used by both men and women to reduce the risk of HIV infection during anal sex.

    Traditional leaders and traditional structures are an influential force among a large majority of communities in Africa.Traditional leaders wield influence and command much respect within their communities. There is a strong link between traditional leadership and culture, with traditional leaders considered the custodians of culture from one generation to the next. At the same time, considerable evidence highlights the link between HIV and gender-based violence (GBV), and the role of harmful cultural practices in fuelling the spread of HIV and the proliferation of GBV.

    The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) community are a neglected and often discriminated against community. Their sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs and rights have largely been marginalised in the HIV and SRH response to date. However there is currently a slow shift towards integrating LGBTI issues into broader HIV and SRH programming.
