The meeting aims to strengthen the capacities of the executives of ministries in charge of education (Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Senegal and Togo) for the implementation of effective programs in emerging areas related to reproductive health, including gender-based violence, including early and unwanted pregnancies in schools.

The meeting in Dakar is a prelude to the project to respond to school related gender-based violence in Cameroon, Senegal and Togo, and an addition to the project aiming at empowering women and adolescent girls in Mali. It is a technical workshop for sharing and capacity building with key players in the education sector of these countries, Côte d'Ivoire and partners that support initiatives in response to school-related gender-based violence and unwanted pregnancies in Western and Central Africa.
