The Power of We: When Youth Take Charge

Monday, June 3, 6:00 am –8:00 am | West Building of the Vancouver Convention Center, Room 220

Join Rise Up and Johnson & Johnson to hear from amazing young leaders from Bangladesh, South Africa, Pakistan, and India on why engaging young people is essential to improving the health and well-being of youth around the world. Young people are creating solutions that have real potential to both improve the persistent health challenges affecting youth populations and to address the limitations and inequities that exist throughout the current health system. We will examine the health barriers that impede girls’ and young women’s ability to achieve their full potential, as well as real-life examples and opportunities for young leaders to address these barriers through their own advocacy and design of youth-friendly health services and programs. In partnership with Johnson & Johnson.

No registration required.
