2022 Youth Health Conference

Recovery. Resilience. Rights

Welcome Message

MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CONVENORS AND PRESIDENT

The Australian Association for Adolescent Health warmly invites you to Centrepiece at Melbourne Park, for the 2022 Youth Health Conference.

Our conference theme of “Recovery. Resilience. Rights.” encourages us to focus on the strengths of young people and how we can work together with them to identify needs and co-design services that address the right for young people to receive quality health care within their communities, in a post Covid environment.  

The AAAH 2022 Youth Health Conference provides the opportunity for researchers, health care professionals, academics, youth advocates and policy makers to come together with young people to network, share experience and showcase the latest findings, practices and models of care in Adolescent Health. The meeting allows for like-minded people to exchange ideas, make connections and inspire action, ensuring that young people are heard and that their health and wellbeing is seen as a priority.

After a 3-year break, (thanks Covid), we are excited to finally meet again in 2022.  Our 3-day program is packed with exceptional speakers and panels that will challenge and inform our thinking and practice. The Youth Forum will provide a platform for young people aged between 12 and 25 years to meet and connect while also providing feedback to speakers, members and delegates on what young people see as priorities in Adolescent Health and how we can work together to address those priorities.

We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne in November for the 2022 Youth Health Conference.
