Population Foundation of India

To understand how India’s young people are coping with the COVID-19 challenges, in May 2020, Population Foundation of India (PFI) conducted a rapid assessment to understand the level of knowledge and attitude of young population (15-24 years) towards COVID-19 and how it has impacted their lives.


The study has the following objectives: 1) To understand the level of knowledge, attitude and practices of young people with regard to COVID-19 outbreak and 2) To understand the impact and challenges of COVID-19 on young people (loss of study and jobs, domestic violence, mental health issues, access to health services, especially Reproductive Health and Family Planning), their coping mechanisms and immediate needs/priorities.
