    WHO publishes “Coming of Age” on better health for adolescents

    The world has more young people than ever before: of the 7.2 billion people worldwide, over 3bn are younger than 25 years and around 1.2bn 10-19 years

    The World Health Organization has published “Coming of age”, an in-depth online feature to advocate for better health for adolescents. The package includes video, gifs, visuals, and features on a range of topics on adolescent health, spanning mental health, sexuality education, as well as violence against and among youth, which remains a leading cause of adolescent deaths world-wide.
