Young people (10-24 years) represent one third of India’s population. In this potential demographic dividend the burden of disease is increasing attributable to health and sexual right violations. MAMTA is a leading contributor in improving sexual and reproductive health of these groups, through the life cycle approach through gender, sexuality and rights as the guiding principles of the interventions. MAMTA primarily works under four intersecting domains, Comprehensive Sexuality Education; Adolescent Friendly Health Services; Addressing Harmful Traditional Practices like Early Child Forced Marriage; Changing Inequitable Gender Norms. Over two decades of promoting community empowerment as well as action along with informing national policy and programming, MAMTA has demonstrated how multi-sectoral interventions can contribute to essential sexual and reproductive rights realization. The youth friendly health services (the flagship program of Government of India) is being supported by MAMTA at various levels through technical inputs. MAMTA has been instrumental in designing and developing the Adolescent Friendly Health Center.
