The 3rd week of March every year has been designated as the International Adolescent Health Week (IAHW) to engage stakeholders to collectively work towards improving the health and well-being of the over 1 billion adolescents globally.
The IAHW 2023 will take place on the 19-25 March 2023 with the theme ‘
With and For Adolescents: Building a Healthier and More Inclusive Future’
Goals of the week are:
• To increase recognition of the unique health issues facing adolescents worldwide by both adults and adolescents
• To increase engagement of adolescents in their own health decisions
• To stimulate events worldwide highlighting issues facing adolescents and ways to address them during International Adolescent Health Week.
