"Expanding the Vision for Youth Health and Well Being"
Adolescents are the age-group that has seen the least improvement in health status over the past 3 decades. Traditional clinical services have failed to provide accessible and high quality interventions that adequately meet the needs of young people.
This conference aims to provide a forum for debate and agenda setting for professionals working with young people in health, community and school settings.
Conference themes include:
models of service delivery which are accessible and non-stigmatising
new interventions across the range of young people's health and well being issues
re-orientation of practice towards prevention and promotion of positive development
service delivery in high need areas.
Expressions of interest in making a presentation at this conference are now invited (initial deadline, 30 November, 2001. For full details about the conference and how to make an expression of interest, email firstname.lastname@example.org
