The Youth Wellbeing Initiative at the Aga Khan University Institute for Human Development seeks to advocate and implement programs that promote the health and general wellbeing of adolescents.
Our programmes address a variety of issues that the youth face by: promoting their mental health, fostering connectedness among adolescents and their families, assessing the impact of extreme adversity on adolescent developmental outcomes, and generating evidence on implications, gaps, and opportunities that can promote youth wellbeing.
INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
The Youth Wellbeing Initiative is hosted by the Aga Khan University’s Institute for Human Development. The Institute for Human Development is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge with direct relevance for policies, programs, and practices that enhance life experiences at all stages of human development. In its foundational years, the Institute seeks particularly to become a visible instrumental force, locally as well as globally, for advancing knowledge about the earliest years of children’s development and for harnessing such knowledge for the purpose of shaping policies and interventions that ensure a strong start in life for all children wherever they may live.
