Sağlıkta Genç Yaklaşımlar Derneği was founded in 2015 in Ankara by a group of mostly young women working within the network of Y-PEER Turkey. The association has been working with young people in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights, as well as on issues of active citizenship, human rights and gender mainstreaming on local and national level. It is the one and only CSO in Turkey that focuses totally on young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights. The association advocates sexuality as a significant part of human development and integrity.
Within the framework of its Peer Education Programme, the association reaches out to young people and provides sexual health knowledge –a form of knowledge that is not currently provided by the national education system in Turkey.
