"By choice, not by chance" is chosen as theme for the UNFPA State of World Population Report 2012, which was launched worldwide on the 14 November.

In Cambodia a panel discussion between representatives from governemnt institutions and non-governmental organizations and nearly 200 young people coming from different background.

The forum was an inspiring moment for the audience. Participants heard interventions being implemented by the government and NGOs, received accurate information and interacted with experts on family planning. The forum did not only allow youth to raise their voice and concern but it was the place where young people were informed on misconceptions on the use of contraception and change unsafe practices on sexual reproductive health and rights. The questions from the audience were challenging the panel experts in many ways.
