Youth LEAD is the Asia Pacific Network of Young Key Populations (YKP) ages 14-30.

Youth LEAD was created to develop partnerships among young key populations (YKP) organizations in Asia and the Pacific. We equip our members with the necessary skills and tools to advocate for change by empowering YKP at the grassroots level.

Youth LEAD is unique because we bring together all young key populations to the same platform. Our organization and programs are led, designed, and implemented by young people, working for other young people. We embrace each other’s differences and celebrate our similarities, connected by our values and needs of being young and our shared passion to end HIV/AIDS. This is what makes Youth LEAD strong: our network of young men who have sex with men, young sex workers, young people who use drugs, young transgender persons, and young people living with HIV, who all come together to advocate for issues that affect us and our communities.

Objectives of the organisation

  • Promote a unified platform and common voice for YKP in the Asia and Pacific region, through providing representation and coordination at various forums where YKP should be represented.
  • Establish or strengthen national networks of YKP in Asia and the Pacific region to ensure their representation at all decision-making forums and processes that affect their lives.
  • Advocate for the harmonization of policies that negatively impact on the health and well-being of YKP, reduce stigma and discrimination for HIV persons and promote/raise awareness on HIV related issues in relation to YKP
  • Advocate for universal access to a diverse range of evidence-based, locally driven harm reduction approaches in conformity with the ‘UNFPA, UNESCO, UNAIDS, UNICEF’ Technical Guide for countries to set targets for universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care for adolescents and YKP in the Asia and Pacific region.
  • Establish strategic alliances and forge collaborations with various like-minded individuals, groups and organizations to promote and support the effective and meaningful participation of young people and adolescents in the regional and global response to HIV.
  • Provide expertise, resources and support to country networks in advocating for issues affecting young key populations.

Consulting Communication Hack that (almost) all Consultants use

House without any problems, remaining only in silver high-heeled sandals. I put all the things in a beach bag, which I gave to Masha in exchange for a small package with a dress. Masha winked at me and closed the door, and with shaking hands with impatience, I unfolded the bundle and laid out.

The dress and panties (from the same material, by the way, ordinary, not thongs).

Now discussing:

We sat on a bench under the canopy of the first stop we met, just outside the city limits. I pretended to be asleep, and Sergei had been trying for an hour to persuade the woman to become more accessible, wandering around. The luxurious body with his hands. But all his attempts were in vain.

- Seryozha, leave me alone.
