AYPH is committed to supporting evidence-based practice in adolescent health and healthcare. Sharing learning and best practice is central to AYPH's mission. Use of evidence underpins all the work we do.
Every two years AYPH publishes a compendium of publically available data on adolescence. The most recent edition was published in 2011, and we are currently working on KDA 2013, for publication later this year. AYPH is grateful to the Child and Maternal Health Observatory (ChiMat) for supporting this work. ChiMat is now part of Public Health England.
"Facts not misperceptions: an essential guide for anyone working with young people, delivering and planning services or making decisions that affect them and a great source of data for young people too". Professor Paul Johnson, Regional Director of Public Health
Members receive hard copies of Key Data when they join or renew their membership, and electronically on the AYPH members area of this website (email email@example.com for more information). Non-members can purchase KDA on-line by following this link . Summaries can be downloaded in our resources section.
Our Research Updates series, summarising the latest research on key topics in adolescent health, continues to expand. These are also funded by ChiMat/PH England. See the Research Updates part of the website for more information.
Drawing on what we know about recent trends in child health, our position paper summarises the important messages for policy makers and practitioners. The most recent version was published in 2012; a new version is planned for early 2014. ChiMat has also provided valuable datasets to support the position paper. Both the paper and the resources are available here.
ChiMat's website provides a range of information and tools which set out key data and indicators in the field. AYPH works in partnership with ChiMat to feed important new information about young people's health into the Young People's Knowledge Hub, helping practitioners keep up to date.
We regularly give presentations about our work at conferences and workshops.
