Iraq conducted NYS in cooperation with UNFPA and the PAPFAM of the League of Arab States. NYS provided statistical indicators on various characteristics of young people and their knowledge, attitudes, and practices. NYS was conducted within the efforts of the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) to compile and draft a national strategy for youth. The preparation of a youth strategy requires an analysis of these results to clarify the views and attitudes of young people towards life issues and problems they face and analyze their relationship to each other, and to develop recommendations aiming at strengthening the pace for the advancement of youth.
