"I believe that if we are equipped with adequate, timely and youth-friendly information and services on sexual and reproductive health, we will have a better understanding and knowledge of safe sex and how to protect ourselves,” 20-year-old Truong Van Duoc said at an awareness-raising event organized by UNFPA and others in Bien Hoa in Viet Nam.

The event was one of 30 that took place in the country in 2014 to disseminate information about adolescent pregnancy, condom negotiation and other key health messages. Information booths, staffed by trained young people, were also on hand to provide information about sensitive issues, including how to use condoms and protect against HIV transmission.
