Notes on YRH Policy: The Note Taker
The author of Notes on YRH Policy is James E. Rosen (Jim Rosen), an independent consultant who has worked with Constella Futures on youth reproductive health policy issues for the past seven years. He has written about, analyzed, and contributed to YRH policymaking in several countries including Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Haiti, Jamaica, Nigeria, Uganda, and Zambia. Holding a master’s degree in economics, he has worked for over two decades in the field of international health. Jim’s most recent work has focused on making sure HIV programs include a proper focus on young people, figuring out ways to mainstream youth issues in poverty-reduction strategies, trying to measure whether health sector reform has had an impact in Honduras, and searching for sensible and cost-effective linkages between HIV and other reproductive health programs. He is part of the team that runs the youth-policy.com website.
