Young people challenging child marriage in Indonesia
Legal success is turning the end of child marriage in Indonesia into a burgeoning movement for action on HIV and SRHR.
Advocacy from a coalition of community organisations, including partners supported by the Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response, saw the Indonesian Government increase the legal marriage age for women from 16 to 19, bringing it in line with men. Youth-led network Inti Muda explains how it has worked with marginalised young people in the rural province of Papua to ensure the amended law is helping to change practices in communities where it matters the most.
