Youth faced several challenges during lockdown 

Part of: GS Mains II – Social/Youth issue 


According to Population Foundation of India (PFI) survey – 

  • Majority of the young women in Bihar, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh were not able to sufficiently access sanitary pads during the COVID­19 lockdown. 
  • More than one in five men and women between the ages of 15­24 reported experiencing depression (due to challenges of economic insecurity, family clashes and increased domestic chores) 
  • About 22% of young people said they experienced depression due to the lockdown, citing factors such as worry about the lack of job opportunities, delay in completing their studies, family pressure and lack of privacy and isolation away from friends. 

The survey aimed to assess the challenges to mental and reproductive health faced by adolescents and young adults due to COVID­19.
