Access to services, removal of stigma and "education, education, education," are crucial aspects of promoting gender equality and empowering women to make decisions about their reproductive health.

That's according to Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, the Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

Dr Osotimehin was at UN Headquarters for a panel discussion on the sexual and reproductive health of young people.

Following the discussion, Dr Osotimehin spoke to Lucy Dean about the importance of sexual and reproductive education.
