“Last week I had the opportunity to attend a week long intensive summer school at the University of Barcelona Institute for Global Health in Spain. The theme for the summer school was Lost & Found: Adolescent Health in the 21st Century, and was packed full of great presentations and workshops pertaining to adolescent health – the epidemiologic trends, unique challenges, and opportunities for intervention with this specific age group. By the end of day 1 we were able to articulate three leading reasons why adolescent health should be a global priority: 1) to on the investments that are made in childhood, 2) to rectify deficiencies that may exist from early childhood, and 3) there is a triple dividend effect – with impact on the health of current adolescents (adolescents now), future adult population health (adolescents grown up), and health of the next generation (the kids of today’s adolescents). Many great leaders from the field of adolescent health participated in the summer including folks from the World Health Organization (WHO), who shared a new tool specific to adolescent health called Health for the World’s Adolescents: a second chance in the second decade, accessible here.”
