Applications are now open for the 2016 Barcelona Global Health Summer School:Lost & Found: Adolescent Health in the 21st Century.

As the World Health Organization rightly highlights, adolescents are often thought of as a healthy group. This is far from reality: Too many adolescents die prematurely due to suicide or other forms of violence, injuries resulting from road or domestic accidents, or sexual and reproductive health conditions, including pregnancy-related complications. This should not be the case: those illnesses are either preventable or treatable. Additionally, a growing number of teenagers experience chronic disease and disabilities. Furthermore, many conditions developed in an adult age are rooted in the adolescence, like those linked to life habits – smoking, overweight, sexually transmitted infections. As a consequence, a poor adolescent health results in a shorten life expectancy and a lower quality of life.

The Barcelona Global Health Summer School 2016 will provide a comprehensive overview of the adolescent health current status in the world to students and young professionals from diverse backgrounds. At the end of the week, participants will be able to think critically about adolescent health main topics and appraise the alternative solutions being offered by the experts.

Who can participate?

Any young professional or undergraduate coming from different backgrounds interested in learning more about adolescents’ health issues, and more broadly, about global health challenges.

The Barcelona Global Health Summer School 2016 is a 5-day workshop that will take place from the 11th to the 15th July 2015 in Barcelona. The sessions will take place in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Barcelona, C/ Casanova, 143, Barcelona, Spain, from 9am to 18pm with 2 hours of breaks.
