The revised National Youth Policy, covering the three years from 2010 to 2013, follows the paradigm shift in youth work and theory: from a focus on ‘youth problems’ to an understanding of young people as partners in the development of society. Understood as such, young people do not simply represent the future but also contribute towards the shaping of that desired future through their present activity.
The policy seeks to promote sexual health as an essential and integral element of the holistic notion of human well being. Categorically it is not exclusively about contraception, or
