WHO African Region

Adolescent Health in Africa

Lushomo helped the African regional office of WHO communicate the status of adolescent health in the African region. We undertook a review of the available literature and online data. Gathering the best information we could, we undertook an analysis of key challenges, trends and priorities for adolescent health. We then developed a number of materials including a graphic-rich background report, a summary report, a series of posters, banners, stationary and stickers.

One of the noticeable things about this job is how information about adolescent health is scarce and undervalued. Presenting that information in a way that highlights its importance for policy and programming is a priority that we are keen to continue assisting with.


Communicating the status of adolescent health in the African Region


Two reports, a series of posters, banners, stationary and stickers


We developed posters that included important information, as well as a graph, for 7 areas of concern for the health of adolescents: alcohol and tobacco use, education, employment, HIV, adolescent pregnancy, maternal mortality and sexual violence

We created an infographic that showcases important data on the challenges and priorities on sexual and reproductive health. The infographic comes in an online version and a pull-up banner.

Our main deliverable for this project was a full background report on the key trends and challenges of adolescent health in the African region. It includes chapters on the context of adolescents in the region, the current status of adolescent health, the reproductive health context and other health issues.

We collected and analysed data from several sources, and designed many graphs that showcase the key messages and stories.

The full campaign also included stickers and stationary, such as CD-ROMs and a folder that holds the materials.
