Dear Family Planning Champion,
Young people must be closely involved and engaged in family planning and reproductive health advocacy so that policies and programs can be better designed to serve their needs. In a recent blog post, Pathfinder International shared that it (in collaboration with PAI, AFP, and the Ouagadougou Partnership) is implementing a regional project to support and mentor youth organizations to further empower them in their advocacy work.

Pathfinder, PAI, and Jhpiego recently organized a workshop to train facilitators on the newly refreshed “SMART Advocacy” approach in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The facilitation session was attended by youth from civil society organizations from five countries: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, Togo, and Senegal. At the end of this session, each country team mapped out a “micro-action plan” for a training session with youth upon their return.
