UNESCO HIV and Health Education Clearinghouse

Fulfilling our promise to young people today: progress review meeting

On 7 December 2013, health and education ministers and representatives from 20 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa affirmed a landmark commitment supporting sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents and young people. In the two years since its endorsement, the region has already made significant progress.

A high level meeting to discuss the progress of the ESA Commitment will be held on the side-lines of the International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa. The meeting will host selected ministers, senior government officials from ministries of health, education, youth and gender; young people; development partners; and civil society to:

  • Review progress towards the ESA Commitment 2015 targets, share best practices and agree on next steps to accelerate progress towards 2020 targets.
  • Discuss ways to strengthen cross-sectoral collaboration to ensure effective delivery of all the ESA Commitment targets.
  • Reaffirm political commitment by endorsing ROADMAP 2020, which outlines key milestones to reach the 2020 targets.
