Edition 24 – Youth

Edition 24, Youth & Public Health

The United Nations has highlighted the idea that young people are a major human resource for development and are key agents for social change, economic growth and technological innovation.


Youth has been and continues to be the driving force of change however, modern times have created conditions in which young people fear the threat of violence in places of education. This has created unsafe conditions which discourage students from participating in our learning institutions and gaining an educational foundation. A good educational foundation can be put to use through real-life experiences which can augment learning and innovation. Showcased by HPHR, these articles bring focus to the important issue of safe education.
