World Population Foundation, Pakistan conducted this study with the aim to acquire a clear picture of SRH Rights' situation of young people in Pakistan. The purpose of this research was to get a vivid image of the current situation on one hand and on the other hand to use the findings of the research to influence positive change through programmatic interventions and policy advocacy initiatives. Both quantitative and qualitative methods of research were used for the purpose of this research. A web-based questionnaire was developed and shared with Knowledge Bearers forming part of the quantitative component while Focus Group Discussions and In-Depth Interviews were conducted directly with various groups of stakeholders for the purpose of obtaining qualitative data. Moreover, literature review of previously published national and international researches and other documents was also carried out. The findings of this research manifest limited realization of young people's SRH Rights; extreme discrimination against marginalized communities and highlights an acute need to sensitize healthcare providers in both the private and public sector. The findings will provide a base on which WPF, Pakistan and other SRHR focused organizations as well as government agencies will be able to build their advocacy strategies and interventions in education and health sectors to make them more youth and SRHR friendly.
