Highlights from our Pre-World Population Day activities this year

Every year since 1989, July 11 is celebrated as World Population Day. The day was established by the then-Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme and seeks to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues.

The global theme for this year is ‘Family Planning is a Human Right’ which inspired Uganda’s national theme which is; Leaving Nobody behind: Improving Service Delivery and Accountability commemorated at Bobi Community Polytechnic Playground along Gulu-Kampala Road in Omoro District.

We were honored to take part in two pre-World Population Day activities focusing on young people and these were;

The National Dialogue on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights of Young People

This was organized together with the Dutch Embassy, National Population Council and UNFPA Uganda on June 24th at Kabira Country Club. Here are some key highlights.

The Youth Summit

On June 28th, we shifted the campus to Kitgum District for the Pre Youth Summit attended by youth champions from Northern Uganda and Kampala for a learning and accountability dialogue where they had field visits in the morning and shared their findings with district leaders. Held at the district headquarters Hall, It was the first time the AfriYAN and WAY Youth Champions met for the first time to learn from each other. It attracted stakeholders ranging from civil society, district officials, health workers and so much. Here are the highlights.
