This article discusses the reproductive health practices of young Arab people. Cultural and religious sensitivities are limiting young adults' sexual and reproductive information and services. Health organizations generally fail to acknowledge the needs of this age group, which are rarely known or recognized. The conflict in the region may have serious implications for young adults' health concerns, as creative small scale programs need to be improved upon.
