No changes posted.
The Adolescent and Young Adult Health National Centers Cooperative Agreement Program is part of the ongoing National Initiative to Improve Adolescent and Young Adult Health (NIIAH), which started in 2001. The Program addresses the following set of goals: 1) Elevate national, state and community focus on, and commitment to, the health, safety, positive development, and social and emotional well-being of adolescents and young adults and their families; 2) Increase their access to quality health care and health promotion services, including comprehensive general health, oral health, mental health and substance abuse prevention and treatment, health and safety education, and youth development programs; 3) Improve health and safety outcomes in such areas as mortality, unintentional injury, violence, mental health and substance abuse, oral health, reproductive health, and prevention of adult chronic disease; and 4) Eliminate health disparities among adolescents and young adults. The Program, which has a national scope, uses three complementary frameworks: Healthy People (note that Healthy People 2010 will transition to Healthy People 2020 during the program period); principles of healthy youth development; and supporting relevant state and community infrastructures. The Program contains four categories of effort that together address the needs of a broad array of practitioners, professionals, administrators and other leaders and decision-makers at national, state and community levels. Grantee organizations are expected to work collaboratively on Program goals with each other, and with other organizations participating in NIIAH.
Category 1 The National Adolescent Health Information and Innovation Center serves as a coordinating center for the approximately 30 governmental and non-governmental organizations that participate in NIIAH. Working collaboratively with other NIIAH organizations, it coordinates the collection and synthesis of information, as well as the development, dissemination and diffusion of action-oriented and innovative materials relevant to adolescent and young adult health, safety, positive development, and well-being.
Category 2 The Public Policy Analysis and Education Center for Middle Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Health (Policy Center) analyzes the effects of public policies, regulations and practices at the community, state and federal levels on the health, safety, social and economic well-being of school-aged children transitioning to adolescence, adolescents, young adults, and their families. The Policy Center enhances the knowledge and informs the practices of professionals from a variety of interacting fields (for example health, mental health, human services, safety, education, and youth development), program administrators, and other
decision- and policy-makers regarding the short- and long-term consequences of public policies on these population groups.
Category 3 The Adolescent Health Resource Center for State Maternal and Child Health (State Resource Center) promotes State Title V Maternal and Child Health Program core capacity in adolescent and young adult health, safety, positive development, and well-being, and assists states in developing strategies for improving measurable health and safety outcomes for these population groups. The State Resource Center provides technical assistance, including tools and other resources, to State Maternal and Child Health Programs for enhancing their abilities in such domains as: advancing commitment to these population groups; needs assessment, planning and evaluation; surveillance and data systems; development of partnerships; program and system development; formulation of policy; and technical assistance to communities and families.
Category 4 The Partnership to Promote Adolescent Health in States supports a national membership association to assist its members and affiliates in developing improved approaches for delivering adolescent and young adult public health programs at the state level. The grantee works to promote the importance of, and strategies for, investing in adolescent and young adult development, health, safety, and well-being among state-level officials and administrators whose programs serve youth and their families. Methodological approaches are expected to focus on the state-level memberships and affiliates of national public health membership associations.
