A healthy Adolescent, ........A healthy nation

Why invest in the health and development of
adolescents?

Investing in the health of adolescents helps prevent the estimated 1.4 million deaths that occur globally every year due to road traffic injuries, violence, suicide, HIV and pregnancy related causes.

It can also improve the health and well-being of many millions of adolescents who experience health problems such as depression, anaemia or HIV infection; and promote the adoption of healthy behaviors that help prevent health problems that occur later in life, such as cardiovascular diseases and lung cancer resulting from physical inactivity and tobacco use initiated during adolescence.

Finally, investing in adolescent health can prevent problems in the
next generation such as pre-maturity and low birth weight in infants born to very young mothers
