Happy New Year from SAYPHIN
On behalf of the President and the entire National Executive of the Society for Adolescent and Young People’s Health in Nigeria (SAYPHIN), I welcome you to a new year and pray that it is a prosperous and fulfilling one for all of us.
I hereby express my sincere gratitude for your membership and commitment to SAYPHIN. The past year was indeed challenging as we all stood together against the COVID-19 pandemic. As we begin a new year, my prayer is that we continue to keep safe and remain healthy as we hope for a speedy end to the pandemic. While the activities of the Society have been impacted significantly in the past one year, the National Executives have, nevertheless, forged on and a significant amount of work has been carried out to lay a solid foundation for the second edition of our National Conference during which we will simultaneously host the 1st African Regional Conference on Adolescent and Young People’s Health under the aegis of the International Association for Adolescent Health (IAAH). The conference will hold on 18 – 21 August 2021 at Abuja.
