Youth Informed Project on Health Policies and Strategies: UNICEF Survey

UNICEF in partnership with AstraZeneca is launching a 5-year program focused on youth-led policy change around prevention of mental ill-health, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory diseases by targeting key risk factors such as substance use, physical inactivity, air pollution and environmental risks, tobacco use, and unhealthy diets.

Throughout this process, UNICEF will systematically involve young people in all phases of the program and include them in the decision-making process with country governments. Only by doing so, can we together ensure healthier, happier, and safer lifestyles and environments for young people.

Further, this will allow UNICEF to connect with young leaders, learn about their initiatives, understand how they are leading and influencing their communities, understand how they support adolescents, learn about the most pressing adolescent health and well-being issues, identify areas for supporting and partnering with youth organisations, and determine the needs of youth-led groups.
