The Samoa Youth Monograph (SYM) 2020 draws on and analyses data collected in the 2016 Samoan Population and Housing Census to present a picture of the younger generation in Samoa. This policy brief is one of three accompanying briefs that have been developed through a stakeholders consultation process to take a closer look at specific topics that impact on adolescents (aged 15 to 19 years) and youth (aged 18 to 35 years) in Samoa. This brief outlines a strategic pathway to accelerate sexual and reproductive health (SRH) outcomes for adolescents and youth. Its primary goal is to generate dialogue among key stakeholders and help policymakers to identify priority areas for intervention and reform; empower young people with information; and provide an evidence base to those who need data to guide their investment decisions and advocacy efforts.
