African Youth Forum issues call to action for leaders at Uganda summit

A group of more than 100 young people from across Africa are ready to deliver a clear message to leaders of the countries in the African Union, who will be attending the 2010 AU Summit in Kampala, the Ugandan capital.

The youth delegates, representing 40 countries in Africa, gathered here in Entebbe this week for the first-ever African Youth Forum (AYF). They've just finished writing a call to action that two of them will deliver to the continent’s Heads of State early next week.

The young leaders worked together over the three-day meeting to produce their collective recommendations with regard to maternal, infant and child health, the main focus areas of the AU Summit. They also tackled such topics as gender-based violence and the role of poverty in child mortality.
