Therefore, two panels were organized under two themes: « Implementing the African Union Roadmap to Harness the Demographic Dividend in Africa: Ensuring Youth-Friendly Health Services Where They Are Necessary And « Implementing the African Union Roadmap to Harness the Population Dividend in Africa: Ending AIDS by 2030. »

Invited to give her vision during this panel, the First Lady of Côte d’Ivoire, Mrs. Dominique Ouattara said: « … It is clear that the youth of our continent remains vulnerable.
