Our work

Speak Up Africa is a hub of experienced communication and advocacy experts connected to the critical global policy movers and decision makers. Speak Up Africa is focused on awareness campaigns and advocacy for public health and sanitation. From policy change to movement building and community engagement, we work to inspire action around pressing sustainable development issues.

Speak Up Africa fosters national multi-sectoral involvement in public health and sanitation by creating and strengthening coalitions regrouping countries’ main constituencies including government, financial partners, implementing partners, private sector representatives and communities. We provide platforms for partners including CSOs to consult and collaborate to maximize their efforts, particularly around the need to increase sustainable funding for critical health and sanitation programs.
