In addition, the review highlights gaps and limitations in knowledge in Ireland as they relate to the Irish youth population. It provides an overview of recent policies and initiatives that can contribute to strengthening our capacity to address health inequalities across the youth sector.

NYCI and the National Youth Health Programme will work with partners across the voluntary and statutory sector to ensure a continued, integrated approach is taken to address the determinants of health and that investment is universal but at an intensity that is proportionate to the level of need.
