Introduction and Background
The Southern African Regional Students and Youth Conference (SARSYC) is a platform for students and youth in the region to convene, network and collaborate on issues to do with their sexual and reproductive health. SARSYC is a collaborative
advocacy platform where students and youth can
collectively make a case for and demand for
prioritization and investments into their sexual
reproductive health needs.

Since 2015, SARSYC has biennially convened
students and youth from 8 Southern African
countries together with academics, governments,
SADC Parliamentary Forum, UN agencies and other
relevant stakeholders. In 2015 SARSYC was held in
Harare Zimbabwe and in 2017 it was held in
Johannesburg South Africa in partnership with the
University of Johannesburg. The third edition will
be held in Lusaka, Zambia in partnership with the
University of Zambia. SARSYC 3 looks forward to
hosting students and youth from Botswana, South
Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Swaziland,
Malawi and Namibia to interface with government
and relevant stakeholders in a bid to co-create
solutions to the sexual reproductive health
challenges being faced by the region.

SARSYC Governance
SARSYC is currently housed physically and programmatically by the Students and Youth Working on reproductive Health Action Team (SAYWHAT) based in Zimbabwe. As the governance structure of SARSYC is still developing, the conference and its attendant structures are managed using SAYWHAT’S governance framework, with staff being accountable to the SAYWHAT Director, and by implication to the SAYWHAT Board of Trustees. SAYWHAT has also seconded two members of its staff one as Conference Convener and the other as assistant to the convener and 6 country coordinators resident in six countries, dedicated to the platform. After each conference, the next hosting country sets up a local organizing committee led by the hosting tertiary institution.

The hosting tertiary institution works closely with the Conference Convener based in Harare. In these formative stages of SARSYC, SAYWHAT

(www.saywhat.org.zw ) has been financing part of the
Secretariat and the coordination of the conference with support from its various traditional partners andstakeholders.

SARSYC 3
The third SARSYC will be held from the 11th to the 12th of July 2019 in Zambia under the theme “Translating opportunities into action for the advancement of youth sexual and reproductive health and rights in southern African, which is a call to action. In recent times various investments have been put in place to address the SRH challenges of young people in the region, the conference shall examine how to create, engage and harness such opportunities with the aim of ensuring meaningful and sustainable actions that secures the SRHR future of young people in Southern Africa. SARSYC realizes the importance of strategic partners to the young people of Southern Africa and is therefore reaching out to partners in the private sector to ensure the successful convening of the third Southern African
Regional Students and Youth Conference on sexual and reproductive health. Also realizing that students and youth in Southern Africa are faced with various
socio-economic challenges, and may have difficulties
raising the funds needed for them to participate in this regional meeting, SAYWHAT is mobilizing funds to support them to attend the conference.
