Conferences

A healthy Adolescent, ........A healthy nation

Rationale

Globally adolescents constitute approximately 20 % of the population with 196.5 million adolescents in Africa. Uganda has a predominantly young population with adolescents (10-19 Years) constituting 25 % (8.48 million). A young population is highly dependent and vulnerable and also presents serious challenges of addressing their sexual and reproductive health and rights and other conditions. If the needs of the young population are not addressed, they undermine social transformation and sustainable development. Another important aspect of adolescent health that has largely been neglected is oral health. It is a public health concern affecting each individual personally. There is there for need to discuss the importance of improving population’s oral health and the individual’s oral health.

Adolescents remain at risk of many diseases during and after adolescence many of which can be prevented given the correct approaches.
