Supporting Youth Through Self-Care

On April 7th 2021, the Self-Care Trailblazer Group held their very first community forum, led by youth for youth. Young people (those under 30 years old) shared their perspectives on the role of self-care and the promise it holds in addressing the health needs of adolescents and young people in an engaging panel session. Our youth facilitators continued the conversation in engaging breakout discussions where youth spoke about the specific and urgent gaps that they face in their health care journey. We are continuing to gather insights and data as we compile a comprehensive list to help inform policy recommendations that can be shared with the global community — to make advocating for youth needs in self-care an easier option!
