Adolescent week celebration
The Department of Pediatric Nursing RajaRajeswari college of Nursing observed â€˜ International Adolescent Week Celebrationâ€™ from 21ST to 27TH MARCH 2021 on the theme â€œADOLESCENT RESILIENCE IN THE FACE OF PANDEMICâ€
International Adolescent Health Week (IAHW)
is an annual health campaign consisting of dynamic participatory events to inspire adolescents and their communities to advocate for a successful transition into adulthood. A passionate group of adolescent health professionals within the International Association for Adolescent Health (IAAH) and the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine
(SAHM) have been tirelessly collaborating and working across borders to improve and grow this global observance.
Many IAHW 2020 events were abruptly canceled due to the, at that time new, COVID-19 pandemic. A year later, COVID-19 directly affects adolescents in many ways, including COVID-related illness and death, significant educational disruptions, limited social interaction at a stage of development when peer relationships are critically important, stress and exacerbation of mental health symptoms, and job and financial instability. The pandemicâ€™s indirect effects result in fewer well-visits for preventive care, delayed presentation to care for illness, delayed or missed vaccinations, and rising rates of STIs, substance abuse and family and community violence. Through these challenges and uncertainties, many adolescents demonstrate tremendous resilience and adaptability. For this reason, the theme for International Adolescent Health Week 2021 is â€œAdolescent Resilience in the Face of a Pandemicâ€.
Reminding this, and to raise awareness regarding importance of Adolescence health week session was conducted by Department pf Pediatric Nursing, RRCN. Students of 3rd year B.Sc (N) and 3rd year GNM (N) actively participated in creating the awareness. Based on the theme Poster presentation (topic : Self Defense), Collage ( topic : Sexual Abuse) and Painting ( topic : Adolescent Resilience) competition was held on 25th March 2021 at 11.00 am in RajaRajeswari College of Nursing The programme was done under the supervision of Mrs.Kanchana M Naik, HOD, Ms.S.Jasmine Hilta, Mrs.Debalina Dey ,Dept of Pediatric Nursing and other faculties of department .
