New Website and Campaign--YouthHealthRights.ca, Young Canadians Roundtable on Health

A national campaign rallying Canadian youth to advocate for better health

The Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) is empowering Canada’s youth to be participants in their own health and to take action for better health in their communities.

YouthHealthRights.ca is an online education and advocacy platform created by youth to increase health advocacy by and for young Canadians. In collaboration with AstraZeneca Canada’s Young Health Program (https://www.younghealthprogrammeyhp.com/programmes/canada.html), YouthHealthRights.ca will educate, motivate and support young people to advocate for change.

The YCRH invites young Canadians to call on their local MPs to support youth health rights priorities by visiting YouthHealthRights.ca and taking part in a customizable letter writing campaign.

On the website, youth can also explore province-by-province information about their important health rights including the Right to Privacy, the Right to Consent to Treatment, and the Right to Access Health Care.

Explore the site: http://youthhealthrights.ca/.
