The report brings together all WHO guidance concerning adolescents across the full spectrum of health issues. It offers a state-of-the-art overview of four core areas for health sector action:
providing health services
collecting and using the data needed to plan and monitor health sector interventions
developing and implementing health-promoting and health-protecting policies and mobilizing and supporting other sectors.

The report concludes with key actions for strengthening national health sector responses to adolescent health.

The website will be the springboard for consultation with a wide range of stakeholders leading to a concerted action plan for adolescents.
