Adolescents and Youth

Timor-Leste has a large population of adolescents and youths who can provide an important human resource for economic growth. As of 2015, there were 244 thousand in the 15–24-year-old age group, about one-fifth of the total population. 
UNFPA Timor-Leste advocates for the rights of young people, including the right to accurate information and services related to sexuality and reproductive health.
