2017 REPSSI Forum: Equity, Equality for all Girls, Boys and Youth


REPSSI is a non-profit organisation working to lessen the devastating social and emotional (psychosocial) impact of poverty, conflict, HIV and AIDS among children and youth across East and Southern Africa. REPSSI and its partners host a biannual psychosocial support forum to promote awareness and understanding of the importance of psychosocial support (PSS) and to share knowledge on approaches to providing it. The theme of the 2017 forum, which took place in Arusha, Tanzania from 4-6 September, 2017, was “Equity, Equality for all Girls, Boys and Youth.”  Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #PSS4ALL.
