Pathfinder is proud to be a Consortium Partner of the 11th World Congress on Adolescent Health. Adolescence is an important phase of life, when values are being established and life-long patterns of behavior are being formed. We know that supporting adolescent health requires a holistic approach—which is why we are proud to partner with MAMTA Health Institute for Mother and Child and the International Association for Adolescent Health to bring young people together with researchers, practitioners, and donors to share best practices and tackle challenges from diverse perspectives.
Pathfinder is committed to working alongside communities to ensure that adolescents and youth are educated, healthy, respected, safe, and productive. We are excited to share our work promoting positive values and seeking to change harmful norms from around the world, and to learn from colleagues in other disciplines about their challenges and successes in promoting healthy youth.
Be sure to swing by our booth (#11) in the Exhibit Hall to meet our staff and experience some of our online tools. Can’t join us in New Delhi? Follow along on Twitter using @PathfinderInt and #IAAH2017.
