According to the statement, the targeted audience for the conference are African governments, parliamentarians, the media, lawyers, NGOs, religious leaders, traditional leaders, and educational institutions.
The conference, according to the statement, will focus on key sectors which are; education, health, and the law.
“Among the topics to be discussed during the conference include; comprehensive sexuality education, lesbian gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT), abortion, contraception and population control,” the statement reads.
