Investing In Adolescent Health Could Help Africa’s Youth Reach Potential

FIGO: Empowering Africa’s young women
Jennifer Crago, director of communications, advocacy, and publications at FIGO, discusses the importance of investing in adolescent health in Africa. Crago writes, “Young people are sub-Saharan Africa’s greatest asset, but it is only through investing in their lives, including in their sexual and reproductive health and rights, that the potential of Africa’s young people, and the potential for the continent to be a strong, united, and influential global player and partner, will be realized” (8/9).
