The stakeholders include policymakers, civil society organisations, practitioners, and researchers. The vulnerable youth includes youth with disability, school-based youth, refugee youth, and at-risk female youth. The roundtable discussion is also designed to allow an exchange of good practices and experiences in the field of SRHR, based on regional perspectives. It will result in the development of policy recommendations that can guide in setting common agendas and jointly tackle the main challenges related to addressing vulnerable youths and SRHR in Africa.
