In partnership with the AstraZeneca Young Health Program, the Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) has been working to engage young people in understanding their health rights and communicating to government their needs for better health access and outcomes. The YCRH has completed a research project with the University of Toronto and held focus groups with people aged 15-30 to gain an understanding around the knowledge and experiences of youth when it comes to their health rights and health access.
They used their findings to create www.youthhealthrights.ca. Now the YCRH wants to hear from more Canadians - including you!
On October 30th, 2018, from 1-3pm EST, join the YCRH for an online cross-Canada focus group on youth health access and rights. Share your experiences and thoughts about accessing health services in your community and how you understand your health rights.
Following the focus group, @TheYCRH will be hosting a Tweet chat from 3-4pm EST. They'll use the hashtag, #YouthRightsCDN to talk about what policy actions youth want to see to make health care and rights more accessible, and how governments can partner with youth to make health policies stronger.
