YAFS4 Regional Compendium


The Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality (YAFS) Study is a series of cross-sectional surveys on the Filipino youth aged 15-24 conducted since 1982 by the University of the Philippines Population Institute (UPPI) and the Demographic Research and Development Foundation (DRDF). YAFS is the only survey of young people that is representative at the national and regional level. Among the main goals of the study is to provide updated information on a broad range of sexuality and reproductive health issues that can be used as basis for developing new interventions and improving current programs that aim to safeguard the health and welfare of the youth.
