In preparation for the SBCC Summit, the event organizers identified rising stars in SBCC from around the world to set the youth agenda. While awaiting the September 2021 event, this group of Youth Champions remain engaged. Joining global efforts to spread accurate health information amidst COVID-19, and leveraging one of the channels most-used by young people worldwide – social media – the team is organizing a series of Instagram Live events to take place over the next weeks. Each event will address a different aspect of young people’s health and seek to answer youth’s questions about safeguarding themselves during the pandemic.
Youth Champion Innocent Grant will host the virtual event on his Instagram page with special guest and reproductive health expert Dr. Paula Baraitser from SH:24.
