Based on a series of discussions with adolescent girls and AGIP Board members, we all agree that the inclusion of adolescent girls and youth should be at the very centre of our work and prioritised within our coalition structure. We are initiating AGIP’s Adolescent Girls’ Advisory Committee (AGAC) with the intention to share decision-making power within AGIP. Committee members will inform the work of AGIP at all levels and will have the opportunity to collectively decide how they would like to engage with AGIP’s governance process, Working Groups, and Board.
