WHO Wants to Hear From You on “Health for the World’s Adolescents”
Why is health important? What do you do to stay healthy? What health issues are you and your friends concerned about? Have you been affected by ill health? In what way? We want to know – your voice matters!
Are you aged between 10-19 years? Or are you a health worker working with adolescents? WHO wants to hear from you!
WHO is developing a report called “Health for the world’s adolescents”. The report will look at the health and development of adolescents, present summaries of what is known about adolescent health – including what promotes or undermines their health – and how communities and countries are meeting adolescents’ needs for health and development.
Today, almost 1 in 5 persons in the world is an adolescent, that’s 1.2 billion people between the ages 10–19 globally! The state of their health is important for their lives now and in the future; for this generation and the next.
