Safeguard Young People Programme Annual Report 2020

When it became clear that the COVID-19 pandemic was set to change life as we know it, the SYP regional team employed several different strategies to ensure quality action at regional and country levels.

As it was essential to align with the African Union Commission (AUC) on Youth and COVID-19, the programme worked in partnership with relevant youth networks and organizations and began applying the 3 Ps: Preventing, Providing and Protecting.

In recognizing that COVID-19 brushes up against a host of other social and health issues, SYP integrated COVID-19 considerations into a range of technical guidance briefs. These included the integration of SRHR into economic empowerment initiatives, the programmatic guidance on integration of climate change into CSE, and the technical brief on the integration of MHM in SRHR programmes.
