I regard JuPHASA as a platform to encourage youth aged between 15 and 35 years to be active participants in addressing public health issues that affect them. Students and other youth in various organisations should be encouraged to take lead in identifying public health issues and in joining forces to try to address them. Thus, my contribution to the JuPHASA will lie in actively encouraging youth, particularly in Limpopo province to partake in public health issues. It is very vital to educate youth in rural areas about public health as little is known in this field and in turn, the association that will gain momentum and be known widely in inaccessible areas.
