AYPH brings together professionals and organisations working to improve young people’s health and wellbeing. By sharing learning and best practice we can promote and provide better services to meet young people’s specific health needs.
The UK has 11.7 million young people aged 10-24 making up 19% of the population. Good health for young people is central to their wellbeing, forming the bedrock for good health in later life. It is critical that we invest in this life stage. In our new update we set out the latest policy and practice debates, recent data on trends, and recommendations for ‘where next’.
