In collaboration with the Ministries of Health and Education in St. Kitts and Nevis, our assessment of self-reported teen health perceptions aims to improve the implementation of the Federation’s Millennium Development Goals. The assessment will facilitate implementation by revealing significant health-related concerns that will inform the design and sustainability of our proposed peer-health education curriculum. We hypothesize that curricular development informed by an analysis of the WHO GSH survey will advance community health advocacy.
