In response to the recently endorsed national youth policy by the Lebanese Council of Ministers on April 3 and launched by President Michel Sleiman on December 1, UNFPA supported a project on enhancing youth institutional capacity on advocacy with focus on heath and high risk behaviors. Within the various sections of the national youth policy emerges a necessity to increase young people’s knowledge and information in health-related topics as well as social integration and civic engagement. More so, one effective mean to enhance a meaningful youth participation in the public sphere is acquiring the skill of advocacy and lobbying.
