Background

The Regional Adolescent Health Indaba (RAHi) has been held since 2020 convened by the young people for the young people with support from various partners in country and beyond.

The past events were a huge success and young people resolved to continue with the same momentum in 2024. TYP and its partners; Ministry of Health, National AIDS Council, PEPFAR, UNAIDS, UNFPA, AfriYAN and other key partners in the ESA region will be hosting yet another Regional Adolescent Health Indaba (RAHi) this year 2024 in Lusaka Zambia. This is in an effort to continue the proven meaningful engagement of adolescents and young people in their diversity as equal decision-making partners on matters that affect their health and rights. As they continue to play an active role in addressing the gaps in health programming including the barriers in accessing health services.

This years’ Regional Adolescent Health Indaba (RAHi) will mainly focus on four themes namely;

In line with the Global AIDS Strategy 2021-2026 and the 2025 Prevention Road Map which call for accelerated HIV prevention responses at country-level. With the number of young people due to double in Africa by 2050, increased efforts will be needed to avoid new infections among adolescents and young people from rising.

In line with the 2019-2030 SRHR Strategy, pinned to the timelines of the SDG agenda & linked to the continent-wide Maputo Plan of Action (MPoA) for the Operationalization of the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, incorporates a policy-oriented programmatic framework that will serve as a roadmap for member states to achieve meaningful change in the provision of comprehensive SRHR to their entire population.

Means that everyone, everywhere can access inclusive, quality health services without financial hardship. Unfortunately, the 2023 Global Monitoring Report published by the WHO and the World Bank biannually, shows that progress on UHC has stalled and reversed in some countries, with 4.5 billion people still lacking access to essential health services and 2 billion facing financial hardship to access them.
Climate change is affecting the foundations of human health and well-being. It represents a profound threat to the Global Goals of defeating HIV, TB and malaria, saving lives and building a healthier, safer, and equitable world for all. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that between 2030-2050 (compared to 1961-1990), climate change will cause an additional 250,000 deaths per year
