Increasing Regional-Level Evidence to Facilitate the Demographic Dividend in Africa

Project Period

September 2016 - May 2019

The project offers scope for APHRC to bring its work and research in Africa to scale, advance its regional population and health work, and deepen its institutional ties with critical regional, intergovernmental, and non-governmental institutions, around shared agendas of sustainable population growth; the demographic dividend; girls, women, and youth; and sustainability of reproductive health commodities and services. This project proposes to generate and disseminate scientific evidence on two areas key to the realization of the DD on the continent, namely fertility dynamics and youth socio-economic conditions.
