Call to join the Youth4Health network

A special initiative of the WHO Regional Director for Europe

The world currently has the largest generation of young people in history. Half of the people on our planet are aged 30 years or younger. In the WHO European Region, every third person is under 30.

Young people are unafraid to challenge the status quo and raise their voices. To build an inclusive and sustainable future for all, youth engagement in health decision-making is crucial at all levels.

Kickstarted in 2021, Youth4Health is the special initiative of the WHO Regional Director for Europe, Dr Hans Henri P Kluge. It aims to amplify and embed youth voices and perspectives into all areas of the WHO Regional Office for Europe’s work.
