My Body, My Life, My World is UNFPA's global strategy for adolescents and youth.

It puts young people—their talents, hopes, perspectives and unique needs—at the very centre of sustainable development. In doing so, it supports the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, and aligns with the new United Nations Strategy on Youth as well as UNFPA's 2022-2025 Strategic Plan.

Everything UNFPA does rests on the commitments to sexual and reproductive health and rights for all, which is embodied in the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development and its Programme of Action. These commitments are crucial for adolescents and youth.

Young people realizing their rights to make informed choices about their own bodies, their own lives and the world they live in is a matter of justice and a driver of a lifetime of returns.

An operational guidance was further developed to provide a practical overview and essential tools and resources for the design, implementation and monitoring of programmes, based on the experiences of UNFPA and its partners around the world.
