The purpose of this study was to support the establishment of a new research agenda regarding population-level interventions and young people’s health. The study focused on interventions devoted to identifying and/or ameliorating risk regarding young people’s sexual and reproductive health. We brought together an interdisciplinary team of researchers and trainees from Canada, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US) to inform substantive areas of enquiry in young people’s sexual and reproductive health research. We focused the scope of our activities on interventions that identify and/or ameliorate risk regarding young people’s sexual and reproductive health, including the following case examples: (1) STI/HIV testing; (2) HPV vaccinations; (3) male circumcision; (4) reproductive genetic counselling; and (5) counselling and provision of long-acting reversible contraception.
4) Develop at least one research proposal to a funding body.
