Youth Network [part one]

While I was stalking him, I found something that is more interesting than FJ which is IPPF ESEAOR Youth Network. It is a non profit organization that focus on accessing to sexual and reproductive health information, services and rights for all young people (Quoted from IPPF FB page) So basically it is about safe sex education for the public. And after doing some digging on the IPPF blog, I found out that FJ is Youth Advocate of FRHAM Malaysia

Advocate is a person who speaks or writes in support or defense of aperson, cause, etc. (usually followed by of ): an advocate of peace.

Okay now, let’s stop talking about FJ and let’s explore what are the interesting things that we can found in IPFF blog….hmmmm……since i’m not that diligent to read the whole annual report, so just lets browse through the main webpage (url:

After reading the webpage, I realized that it is related to what I have learn in Development Communication class. In Dev Comm, we were taught about early sex education to the people living in rural area and bla bla bla. So lets get back to the Youth Network thingy. They are basically aiming on … of course, educating the society about human rights especially when it comes to sexual health. Their target are adolescent and young people age from 18 to 24 (so, I’m not included because I am old! Pity me. lol)

IPPF believed that sexual and reproductive rights should be applied to all because it is a basic human needs. All human have the right to fight for what they believe in either they are from the rural area or urban area.

Reproductive health means that the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have the information and means to do so, and the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health.

They also wants to create awareness about health education especially for married women and also for female sex worker. But is this possible because it is not easy to change people perception especially Malaysian. Malaysian are very good in stereotyping so, how does IPPF going to change that? That is the only question that is playing in my mind now.
