FP2020 is pleased to announce that Margaret Bolaji, Research Associate at the Population and Reproductive Health Initiative at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital in Kaduna State, Nigeria, and Vice President of the UNFPA Youth Advisory Group, will serve as the newly appointed youth seat representative on FP2020’s Reference Group, which provides overall strategic direction for the global partnership.
The new seat offers a unique opportunity for meaningful participation of young people at the highest levels of FP2020’s governance. At age 27, Bolaji, from the Osun State in Nigeria, has demonstrated a strong passion and commitment to increasing family planning access for those who are most in need. She was selected from a pool of 94 applicants from 38 countries. FP2020 launched the application in March upon announcing the new cohort of Reference Group members.
