Op-ed pieces should aim to address:
- What youth specifically hope to get from the Commission report
- What is needed to ensure they are meaningfully involved in the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of all policies, programmes, services, and tools related to digital technologies, data, and health as well as the overall governance of health futures.
The Commission wants to receive case studies from youth that address—but are not limited to—any of the following areas of work:
- Examples of youth-led or youth-focused digital health and AI interventions in communities or lines of work and how they have scaled (if relevant), particularly at the grassroots level and/or in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)
- Digital health-related examples arising from youth experiences related to health workforce (e.g. how digital health and AI interventions supported health and social care workers), particularly at the grassroots level and/or in LMICs
- Examples of how youth are/have been considered in the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of all policies, programmes, services, and tools related to digital technologies, data, and health, particularly in LMICs
- Evidence of barriers to digital health literacy, and what has been/is being introduced to overcome these, with emphasis on efforts to improve digital health literacy amongst youth;
- Evidence of how children and young people have worked/are working in collaboration with various stakeholders on shared objectives
- Examples of governance mechanisms that have meaningfully engaged youth for positive, sustainable change.
