Considering that young people aged 15-24 are the most hit by HIV/AIDS epidemic according to UNAIDS (2011), Keeping in mind that young people aged less than 15-35 are the worst hit by Road Traffic Accidents (WHO, 2014), And that young people interact with their environment than any other age group (UN Habitat, 2011),Considering that I have been working with youth-related health topics using a rights based approach, international cultural dialogue and understanding, I have the confidence to say: ‘Any programme that doesnt effectively involve young people in its planning and execution will successfully knit without a pattern!”
My (Our) job and passion is to see young people being given that badly needed youth-friendly enabling platform to define their destiny and that of their peers without interference. Advocacy for a healthy public policy is an integral part of health education and health promotion! And well, public health is a diverse art and science field whose key approaches of promoting, preventing and protecting must focus on the community in question. We all know that.. ;) Together in solidarity, we can fix the mess in youth programmes that are but not limited to:*Youth/Adolescent Sexual & Reproductive Health *Youth/First Aid and Road Safety *Youth/Water & Sanitation *TB & Malaria :-Not a sexy field, but hell yeah ;)
I hope you will find this blog as interesting and resourceful as I think it is (will be).
Much respects :)
