In partnership with the AstraZeneca Young Health Program, the Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) is holding focus groups with people aged 15-30 to gain further understanding around the knowledge and experiences of youth when it comes to their health rights and responsibilities. Collected anonymously, this information will be used to create an online platform to empower Canada’s young people to advocate on the health and wellbeing issues that are important to them.
The Health Rights and Responsibilities Project began in 2015 when the YCRH identified a gap in young people’s awareness around health rights: What rights do we have? How does age affect health rights? Are there differences between the provinces and territories? What actions can we pursue if our rights aren’t being upheld?
To kick off this series of cross-Canada discussions, the very first focus group will be held in Toronto during the collaborative afternoon at the 2017 Sandbox Summit on Thursday, April 6. If you are between the ages of 15 and 30 and would like to share your views and experiences around health rights, responsibilities and advocacy in Canada, please join us!
