The year 2013 was an exciting one for our programme. Following the adoption of the UNFPA’s new strategic plan on improving women’s health and young people’s lives, the Country Office (CO) clustered its programmes, aligning to this focus. Our programming was therefore heightened specifically towards youth leadership and participation.

The Office made deliberate efforts ensuring youth participation in several key regional and global meetings and conferences such as Commission on the Status of Women; High Level Meeting on Health in the Post 2015 Agenda; International Conference on Maternal, Neonatal & Child Health (MNCH); International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Pre & Main Conference; International Conference on Family Planning; Safeguard Youth Programme Regional Planning meeting as well as; the International Conference on AIDS & STIs in Africa (ICASA).
