‘Education Plus’ is a high-level political advocacy initiative (2021-2025) for the empowerment of adolescent girls and young women and the achievement of gender equality in sub-Saharan Africa. The initiative calls for bold leadership by governments and decision-makers to rapidly scale up multi-sectoral policies, actions and smart investments to this end. ‘Education Plus’ is a response to the urgency of effectively preventing HIV among adolescent girls and young women in the region, among other avoidable threats to their survival, safety, well-being and agency that are fueled by gender inequalities and unequal power dynamics. The five-year initiative, launched at the 2021 Generation Equality Forum in Paris, is co-led by the heads of UNAIDS, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF and UN Women.
