Discussion Paper on Youth Health Rights in Canada

In Canada, many young people are not aware of their rights when it comes to health, and even those young people who are aware of their rights may face barriers in seeking to exercise them, particularly in accessing health services.

In partnership with the AstraZeneca Young Health Program, the Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) is undertaking a multi-phase Health Rights and Responsibilities Project to bridge these knowledge and practice gaps.

In September 2016, the YCRH engaged the University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics (JCB) to establish a research base that would inform subsequent phases of the Health Rights and Responsibilities Project. 

The YCRH is excited to announce that the JCB's findings are ready to share!
