Today, the world has more young people than at any time in history. However, far too many of today's 1.8 billion youth (ages 10-24) are not reaching their full potential due to the failure of current policies and investments to meet their needs.
The 1.8 Billion Young People for Change campaign is a bold global movement asking young people what they want for their health and well-being and building demand for decision makers to transform their answers into policies, investments and actions from world leaders.
This campaign is organized with the support of PMNCH, the largest global alliance advocating for the health and well-being of women, children, and adolescents, hosted by the World Health Organization. PMNCH, together with its more than 1400 member organizations, is seeking commitments from world leaders that prioritize adolescent health and well-being.
