Virtual launch of the African Union Malaria Conversation Guide for Youth In Africa

Organized by the AIDS Watch Africa (AWA) Secretariat there will be the Virtual launch of the African Union (AU) Malaria Conversation Guide for Youth In Africa.

Date: Friday, August 12, 2022

Time: 11:00am To 13.00pm (GMT+3)

Place: Online

A recent survey by the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership found that 9 in 10 African youths want to take personal action to fight against malaria, with almost two-thirds believing the disease can be eliminated in their lifetimes. There are various ways of empowering youth to lead and engage in the fight against malaria in Africa. A crucial entry point of action is to equip them to have constructive, productive, and transformative conversations to strengthen malaria response and influence policy formulation and implementation.

In this context, the AU Commission, in ‎collaboration with the African Leaders Malaria Alliance ‎‎(ALMA), RBM Partnership to ‎End Malaria, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and ‎Malaria No More embarked on developing a malaria conversation guide for youth in Africa ‎to empower ‎the young generation for meaningful inclusion in malaria policy dialogue and ‎advocacy. ‎Under the leadership of the AWA Secretariat, the guide will be availed in various visual ‎‎‎forms to fit the diversity of media consumption by youth in Africa and ensure that no ‎‎malaria ‎youth champion is left behind.‎
