4th IAAH MENA Region Adolescent Health Conference

The main theme of this conference is: "Adolescents’ Care: Leaving No One Behind." The conference aims to break the silence around the unmet needs of the large and increasing cluster of disadvantaged adolescents in the Middle East and North Africa Region suffering from chronic illness or disabilities, being an ethnic minority, or living in a low socioeconomic environment or displaced due to political violence.  It will also emphasize that investing in adolescents’ health, development and well-being in general, is the most cost-effective investment a nation can make for the future.
