Age structure for Africa’s population in 2018

Africa’s population is predominantly youthful (UNECA 2016), with those between the ages of 15 and 24 making up 19.4 per cent of the continent’s population (UNECA 2017). If youth are to be involved in sanitation and hygiene activities such as investment and awareness-raising, positive outcomes can be expected. However, if no new investment is made in water, sanitation services and hygiene, the current lack of access will become only more dire for youths, resulting in increased school dropouts and illnesses, among other consequences.
