Happy International Youth Day! 
The 2016 World Contraception Day Ambassadors Share Why Youth Voices Matter

On International Youth Day, Women Deliver is thrilled to announce the 2016 World Contraception Day (WCD) Ambassadors! These are 10 Women Deliver Young Leaders representing six different regions and from a variety of backgrounds. Like the six 2015 WCD Ambassadors from last year, the new Ambassadors focus on storytelling about contraception, family planning, and reproductive health for young people and adolescents. But this year's cohort reaches even more diverse communities, from micropopulations to the transgender community, and they will integrate technology and advocacy in powerful and innovative ways.
