This one-day symposium is for everyone working with, or researching with children, young people and their whānau in order to improve health and wellbeing.

The course will use a child’s rights to health and equity lens to outline the importance of participation and collaboration with children, young people and their whānau. We will explore ethical concerns and challenges, as well as case studies and other examples of effective public health practices. The day will also involve presentations by young people on the work they are doing to support children and young people to have their voices and views heard by decision-makers.
