YAFS5 Regional Profiles

Over the last four decades, the Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality Study (YAFS) has not only produced nationally representative information on Filipino youth but has also allowed us to see the regional diversity of their experiences, beliefs, and attitudes. Regionally representative insights from the YAFS series have informed the development of local programs and policies, especially concerning young people’s fertility, sexual and reproductive health, and non-sexual health risk behaviors. The regional data have also been used for further analyses and spurred conversation about the youth at the local level.

These results, condensed into two-page compendia, especially fill the strong demand from regional agencies, local governments, policymakers, program implementers, and development partners for updated information about the youth in their respective regions.
