The AYF will be held this weekend in Entebbe, one week ahead of the 2010 African Union Summit. 124 delegates ages 16-29 from across the Continent will share their views and identify key strategic recommendations with other participants. The 20 Ugandan delegates to the forum are already planning ways to be part of the development agenda and to become Africa’s strongest advocates for its young people and communities in need.
The theme of the forum is Achieving Maternal and Child Health Goals – African Youth call for action. In addition, there are a number of cross-cutting issues that will be covered during the sessions, such as HIV/AIDS, rights of youth, climate change, and the right to education.
Proposed by UNICEF in 2009, the AYF will also be attended by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Mia Farrow. Partners organizing different aspects of AYF include the African Union Commission, Offices of the President and First Lady of Uganda; National Youth Council, Uganda’s Ministries of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Foreign Affairs; and Health; Commonwealth Association; UN agencies and civil society groups.

The sessions of the African Youth Forum will be webcast. This will provide an opportunity for every young person in Africa to follow the activities and also be involved and interact through chat sessions through generous suport from the Uganda Telecom. In the AYF media room young journalists covering the Forum in Entebbe will interview the youth delegates, file news reports in English, French, Arabic and Portuguese languages and manage the online engagements.
