AHW webinar series

Adolescent Health and Wellbeing Webinar Series

The start of August marks the beginning of a webinar series promoting the health and wellbeing of adolescents. Now, more than any other time, young people have a unique opportunity to advocate for adolescent health and wellbeing and hold their governments accountable for actions which affect their future.

Throughout the month of August, the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH) and other key partners are hosting a weekly webinar. Every webinar a different organisation (as identified by the Adolescent and Youth Constituency) will share their key learnings and best practises, and will discuss opportunities to influence promises, policies and programs to support adolescent health and wellbeing.
