THEME: Plan, Prioritize and Prevent!



The conference calls on governments and stakeholders to effectively plan for the realization of young people’s sexual reproductive health and ensure that there is a coordinated response in addressing students and young people’s sexual reproductive challenges


The conference calls for the prioritization of key populations amongst the youth constituency. These are students in institutions of higher learning with a special focus on the female student, LGBTI young people, young people with disabilities and young people living with HIV

SAYWHAT engages with the parliament on Zim TOP Act

The Students and Youth Working on Reproductive Health Action Team is one of the civil society organizations advocating for safe abortion on demand in Zimbabwe. In particular, the organization is challenging the inadequacies and limitations of the Termination Of Pregnancy act of 1977 which governs the termination of pregnancy. It is SAYWHAT’s argument that the Termination Of Pregnancy act in its current state does not compliment government’s effort to provide Sexual Reproductive Health services in an integrated manner complimenting section 78 of the constitution of Zimbabwe. SAYWHAT is engaging with the parliament of Zimbabwe, in particular, the portfolio committees on Health, Gender, and Justice. The organization seeks to optimize on the legislative and oversight roles of parliament visa vie law alignment and reforms.
