The Austrian contribution ensures that 15.000 women under the age of 18 have access to sexual reproductive health services and consultations and 3.000 girls under the age of 18 are provided access with sexual reproductive health services and consultations. Moreover, the Austrian support provides 700 youth access to reproductive health and life skills services at the youth centre per annum and makes available to 150 Syrian male and female youth participation in at least one (1) initiative promoting healthy lifestyles in their communities in Zaatari camp.
