The analytical report on youth combines findings from the 2015 DHS and Census. It relates to sexual and reproductive health from the recent 2016 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) to provide an overview of the situation and range of issues faced by young people in Timor-Leste today.
The vision of the National Youth Policy is for young people to be “healthy, educated, competitive, active and responsible citizens, who are proud to be Timorese.”
The policy outlines five priority intervention areas: Education; Healthy lifestyle; Employment and employability; Civic participation; Violence and crime. This brief addresses three of these priority areas.
