  • Introduction

    The International World Journal of Public Health (WJPH) invites high quality articles for peer review in the area of youth sexual abuse, gender based violence and reproductive health (SGRH) with focus on global health challenge of youth. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are concern with good health, wellbeing, and gender equity. But, despite the United Nations call on developed and developing countries to invest in youth, stop gender based violence and improves the life of youth through empowerment program, instead the social vices and gender based violence is on the rise globally, resulting in illness and reproductive health challenges and abuse of human right.

Focusing the world, this call for paper seeks original research articles and systematic review on any aspect of youth sexual abuse, gender based violence and reproductive health.
