Today’s generations of young Africans have an equally burdensome responsibility – to add your energy, creativity, your impatience and innovation, and be prepared to take risks – to ensure that our dream of an integrated, people-centred, peaceful and prosperous Africa becomes a reality, in your lifetime.

H.E. Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, AUC Chairperson.

“We are at work...ensuring that young people have the information, services and supplies they need to make a safe, healthy and fulfilling transition from adolescence to adulthood,”
Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, UNFPA Executive Director.


The Youth Division of the AUC seeks to convene a pre-conference of young people from all over Africa on the eve of 3rd International Conference on Family Planning. The pre-conference is an opportunity for young participants to interact with stakeholders; highlight the youth components to family planning and work out innovative solutions within the context of Agenda 2063.



The Youth Division of the AUC, with the support of our partners, has created a scholarship program to promote participation at the International Family Planning Conferences scheduled to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This financial aid supports young Africans to participate both at the Youth Pre-Conference and the International Conference on Family Planning.



In line with the recommendations of Agenda 2063, the Youth Division of the African Union intends to engage African youth in policy frameworks to guide action plans on sexual and reproductive health. For this reason, this forum, as a prelude to the conference, opens up discussions on key challenges faced by youths with regards to sexual and reproductive health.
