Building the capacity of young people is critical to realizing the promise of the Sustaining Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health. Adolescents and young people are uniquely positioned to be effective advocates to hold their governments accountable for the delivery of promises, policies and programs that affect their lives. Now, more than any other time, young people have an opportunity to make sure every adolescent gets counted; and take action to advocate for adolescent health and well-being.
The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, in collaboration with key partners, hosted a series of webinars with youth-led organizations and other interested stakeholders to share learnings and best practices around key areas identified by the Adolescent and Youth Constituency.
Webinar 1: Adolescents – the missing population in universal health coverage
This webinar showcased key messages from the Report: Adolescent Health: The missing population in Universal Health Coverage and facilitated a dialogue around key priorities and recommendations including smart funding, research, prioritizing interventions and engaging young people in decision making to ensure no adolescent is left behind.
