Adolescence is a time of great change and growth, when young people are negotiating a range of influences, including religious ones. Strategies, including work on sexual and reproductive health, which seek to support the wellbeing and dignity of adolescents and youth, need to give greater consideration to internal and external drivers of wellbeing generated by religion, spirituality and the work of faith-based organizations (FBOs). This paper seeks to unpack some of these dimensions and suggest ways forward for more fruitful collaboration between the UN and faith-based organizations on the sexual and reproductive health of adolescents and youth.
