Posted on May 29, 2014

The WHO Report on the Health for the World’s Adolescents is currently available online at who.int.

From the WHO website: “Health for the world’s adolescents” is a dynamic, multimedia, online report. It describes why adolescents need specific attention, distinct from children and adults. It presents a global overview of adolescents’ health and health-related behaviours, including the latest data and trends, and discusses the determinants that influence their health and behaviours. It also features adolescents’ own perspectives on their health needs.”

The WHO website also has a Summary document, a news release on adolescent health, and a fact sheet on adolescent health, as well as a video.
