Across countries and health markets, public health’s modus operandi is to increasingly give voice to the young people we serve. Together, we’re making room at the table for adolescents and youth to contribute, not just as clients, but as equal partners with lived experiences that inform the health solutions we’re designing together.
This is a youth-powered prescription for a public health revolution.
In Impact magazine, we’ve shared stories about young trailblazers at the helm of transforming the future of youth-powered healthcare. Now, we’re taking it one step further: handing the editorial reins to the next generation.
Impact’s nine Youth Editors, selected from a call for submissions that drew some 70 applications worldwide, represent a cohort of talented young leaders. They have shaped the vision for a captivating issue of Impact centered on what it takes to reimagine how adolescents and youth access modern contraception. In that spirit, our Youth Editors share insight into learning about and decision-making related to their reproductive health.
