Youth Lens on The Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing

The Lancet, a prestigious medical journal, recently published a Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing. The Commission is a thorough look at the current global state of health and wellbeing among young people, and as a young person myself, I found it did great justice, uncovering truths and combining both research and the voiced needs of young people.

The Commission focuses, in part, on how law affects adolescents and their access to resources and services. Access is something that the Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) and the Young Health Program (YHP) have been investigating through the Health Rights and Responsibilities project that we are collaborating on.
