  Abstract: On March 9, 2007, OJJDP and the Office of the Surgeon General held a national invitational workshop on health care in the juvenile justice system. Issues examined in the workshops included physical and mental health problems of youth in the juvenile justice system, the strengths and weaknesses of the health care infrastructure in the juvenile justice system, and the appropriate role of the Federal Government in working with States to address basic public health issues in the juvenile justice system. The performance of OJJDP's juvenile justice programs was recently rated on, a U.S. Office of Management and Budget Web site that presents information from the Federal Government's Program Assessment Rating accountability system. OJJDP's juvenile justice programs are given a performance rating of "adequate." OJJDP helped with the 34th National Conference on Juvenile Justice (March 4-7, 2007). Among the topics addressed were computer crimes against children, the effects of domestic violence on children, the empowerment of youth to reduce crime and bullying, and juvenile drug courts. OJJDP is sponsoring two major national training events for juvenile justice professionals in May and June 2007: Sanctions in Juvenile Justice: A National Training, as well as Federal Youth Court Program: National "Double Track" Training on Youth Courts. A meeting of justice policy advisors on March 9, 2007, considered efforts to protect children from computer-facilitated exploitation. News is provided on the work of the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
