Adolescents – young people between the ages of 10 and 19 years – are often thought of as a healthy group. Nevertheless, many adolescents do die prematurely due to accidents, suicide, violence, pregnancy related complications and other illnesses that are either preventable or treatable. Many more suffer chronic ill-health and disability. In addition, many serious diseases in adulthood have their roots in adolescence. For example, tobacco use, sexually transmitted infections including HIV, poor eating and exercise habits, lead to illness or premature death later in life.Improving Adolescent Health is an emerging area for India to invest in. Abhivyakti, with its mandate of focusing on the first two decades of life, has been actively supporting the Indian government at national and state level in developing platforms for adolescent-friendly health services.
