“Supporting Adolescents in Disasters and Crisis Situations”

As Turkish Family Health and Planning Foundation we continue our work focusing on “adolescents” affected by the February 6 earthquake in Türkiye with the financial support of the Support Foundation for Civil Society, Turkey Mozaik Foundation and UNFPA Türkiye implementation partnership.

This year, we are organizing our traditional November Dialogues Conference with the title “Supporting Adolescents in Disasters and Crisis Situations”. At the virtual event, we will have the opportunity to discuss international standards and the experiences of other countries for supporting adolescents in disaster and crisis situations with experts. We listen to the representatives of civil society organizations working in the field and discuss together the needs of adolescents, the effects of the work done and address what needs to be done for adolescents in the earthquake affected regions.

We welcome everyone who supports the well-being of children and adolescents to the meeting!

Please register for the conference!
