Youth Forum

The Youth Forum, on 14 November, will serve as a venue to build a network of young change agents to generate ideas, explore best practices, encourage future collaborations, and network with other youth leaders from different backgrounds. The event seeks to target youth from various health professions.

The main objectives of the youth forum are to:

  • create a global conversation on the importance of human resources for health among the youth;
  • facilitate and encourage multidisciplinary partnerships and projects in the field of human resources for health;
  • to empower youth with the knowledge, skills and motivation to further the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health.

The organization of the Youth forum is being led by the International Federation of Medication Students Association. For more information and to get engaged please write to
