Youth discusses development goals

23 September 2019 | Youth

The City of Windhoek’s chambers were packed with young people on Saturday who attended the boys and girls leadership conference.
During the engagement, the youth discussed the impact of HIV/AIDS trends on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3, which advocates for good health and well-being. The participants, mostly the City of Windhoek Junior Councillors, openly spoke about HIV/AIDS and its impact on young people, particularly adolescents.
The conference was attended by various speakers and experts in the field of health and social welfare, including UNAIDS Country Director Dr Alti Zwandor, UNFPA Representative Kosmos Kemba, Paulus Shaanika (representing the Ministry of Health and Social Services) and Gift Awaaala from Afriyan.
Amongst others, the conference made recommendations with regards to the barriers of HIV prevention among adolescents.
The CoW organised the conference through the Junior Council program. The next conference is scheduled for the 26 October 2019 and targets boys and girls between the age of 12 and 18.
