Youth-Powered Investments in West and Central Africa

Monday, June 3, 2019
12:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver

Vancouver, BC V6C 3L5


Across Francophone West and Central Africa (WCA), young people too often face socio-cultural obstacles to accessing comprehensive reproductive health services, where and how they need. For young people in WCA to have the SRH choices they want and deserve, we must reimagine how we strengthen the market to reach and serve our youngest consumers, on their own terms.

This Women Deliver, we invite you to join us for a roundtable discussion exploring what it truly means to go where young people in WCA – and beyond – take us as we drive, together, to filling market gaps.

Together, we’ll unpack the power unleashed when young people take the lead on designing, developing and implementing the health solutions that serve them—and how youth-powered investments in AYSRH can fill market gaps so the next generation of WCA adolescents and youth can make, and own, the health decisions that shape their lives, now and into the future.
