Maputo Plan of Action

(African Union Commission)

 

The Maputo Plan of Action, 2006-2010, is an ambitious roadmap for Africa to achieve the ICPD goal of universal access to reproductive health by 2015. By formally ratifying the Maputo Plan, African leaders agreed to change how they addressed reproductive health in their policies and to radically strengthen health systems to tackle maternal mortality and other reproductive health crises. The Plan includes clear goals, outcomes, and outputs with target indicators, timelines, and costing, but the method of attaining the goals is left up to each country.

Young People Today, Time To Act Now

On the 6th and 7th of December 2013, Ministers of Education and Health and their technical representatives from 20 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa met in Cape Town, South Africa to affirm their commitment to strengthening HIV prevention efforts and fostering positive health outcomes through improved access to quality, comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) as well as sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services for young people in the region. This 8 partnership allowed the key Ministries to jointly agree on how best to develop and deliver the information, education and services needed to reverse the HIV and AIDS epidemic, promote healthy lifestyles through CSE as well as related sexual health services. As a result of their deliberations, a new commitment titled; ‘Young People Today, Time To Act Now’ was endorsed to provide a framework for strengthening access to Comprehensive Sexuality Education and Sexual and Reproductive Health Services for young people.
