Zone72 is a national strategy addressing the challenges facing youth, in particular high levels of unwanted pregnancy, gender-based violence, ending child marriage and social sustainability in South Sudan. The campaign advocated for more youth involvement in decision making, youth-led advocacy and equal access to health and education for girls.
72 refers to the estimated percentage of the population who are between the ages of 12-35 (2020).
CAM created Zone 72 under the guidance of the South Sudan Ministry of Health and UNFPA, with the support of the WHO, UNICEF and other NGOs, and in partnership with The South Sudan Nurses and Midwives Association and Shabab La Shabab youth network.
