Get Up Speak Out (GUSO) is a joint program of six NGOs (Aids Fonds, CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality, dance4life, IPPF, Simavi, Rutgers WPF) and their partners in the global South, that aims to empower all young people, especially young women and girls, to realise their Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in societies that are positive about young people’s sexuality. The GUSO program is working in seven countries in Africa and Asia: Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Pakistan and India. To reach this long-term objective, the GUSO program employs five different strategies: building sustainable alliances, ensuring meaningful youth participation (MYP), comprehensive sexuality education (CSE), youth-friendly services (YFS), and advocacy. The GUSO program is implemented in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and runs from 2016-2020.
