Youth health and rights
Youth right to health is an inclusive right extending not only to timely and appropriate health care but also to underlying determinants of youth health.
Gender and social norms
Youth health outcomes are affected by the influence of socialisation and cultural attitudes associated with gender and sexual inequality in various societies.
Sexual health and rights
Multiple rights lead to a state of complete physical, social, and psychological well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system, sexuality, and sexual relationships.
Mental health and wellness
Discrimination affects mental health outcomes of racial and gender minority youth. Lack of support makes it difficult for them to access health services, leaving them isolated.
Drug abuse and wellbeing
There is no single age group of people more affected by drug abuse than youth. In some ways, it feels as an issue everywhere: in our homes, families, schools, communities.
Youth health education
Health and literacy are closely linked, and thus, influence other parameters of youth inclusion and diversity such as inequality, discrimination, power relations, income levels.
