The poignant wave of COVID-19 has chosen neither race, gender, age or status. It continues to affect us all. For Africa’s youth and adolescents, the pandemic continues to pose genuine health and socio-economic challenges.

The pandemic is displaying the adaptability of youth and their ability to respond effectively to the emerging crisis situation in Africa.
This report is a reflection of Amref Health Africa’s ‘ubuntu’ spirit, working with the youth to respond to their needs in the countries where we operate. While this is just the tip of the iceberg, we believe that the fundamental steps taken within five months (March – July 2020) are contributing to lasting change and opening doors to a longer run that still lies ahead.
