Seminar and health education for adolescents

Seminar on health education for adolescents

Adolescents are a phase of rapid growth and development during which physical, physiological and behavioral changes occur. Morbidity and mortality occurring in this group is mostly due to preventable causes. Young and growing children have poor knowledge and lack of awareness about physical and psychological changes that occurs during adolescence. Adolescent’s health programs are fragmentary at present and there is no comprehensive programs addressing all the needs of adolescents. Lack of accurate information, absence of proper guidance, parent’s ignorance, lack of skills and insufficient service from health care delivery system are the major barriers. But the adolescents are the future of nation, forming a major demographic and economic force. Like this previous year, this year SIDS organized seminar (2021-22) and distributed sanitary napkins among the school girls.
