Webinar Launch: Interagency Framework on Digital Health Interventions with and for Young People--October 29 2020, 8:30 New York | 13:30 Yaoundé | 19:30 Jakarta

Dear IBP Colleagues,

Please join us for the global launch of the Interagency framework on digital health interventions with and for young people

Thursday, 29 October, 13:30-14:30 Geneva | 8:30-9:30 New York | 13:30-14:30 Yaoundé | 19:30-20:30 Jakarta

We live in a time where digital health interventions (DHIs) are more relied-upon than ever before and there is a wealth of tools to generate content and reach young users (new social media platforms, influencers, chatbots). This guidance consolidates lessons learned from the first generation of ‘digital4youth’ interventions to ensure the renewed hype around digital doesn’t outpace good intervention development principles. The guidance is targeted towards designers, developers, implementers, researchers, and funders of adolescent/youth-centred DHIs, and describes the key steps in progressing from DHI planning to implementation. Importantly, every section highlights the unique features/considerations for undertaking that step with meaningful youth engagement.

‘Meaningful youth engagement’ can be difficult for organizations to take on and implement systematically. As such, the launch will highlight case studies of promising, ‘positive deviants’ in the space of youth engagement and DHI development using five-minute ‘lightning talks’. Then, an interactive Q&A session will consider what is needed to improve youth engagement and leadership in this second generation of digital4youth.
