Ibis partners with South African Department of Health on new policy

April 2015

Over the past two years, Ibis has worked with the South African Department of Health as an implementation and development partner on various sexual and reproductive health and rights policies. One key area of collaboration was Ibis’s involvement in the Adolescent and Youth Health Policy for 2015 – 2019, a draft of which was recently released. This policy replaces the 2001 Policy Guidelines for Youth and Adolescent Health, and aims to promote healthy development of South African adolescents and youth. We are excited to have been a part of this important update to a critical policy, and look forward to continuing to partner with the Department of Health.
