image of World Youth Report 2003

World Youth Report 2003 provides an overview of the global situation of young people. It explores the hope, ambition and potential that exist in our youth today, while at the same time examining the elements of vulnerability, danger and lost opportunities that are faced by the same group. In doing so it highlights the major challenges and opportunities that face today’s youth and reviews the key global youth issues. Some of the important topics covered in this valuable resource include: education, employment, hunger and poverty, health, HIV/AIDS, conflict prevention, information and communication technologies (ICT) and girls and young women. All these topics were discussed at the United Nations Expert Group Meeting on Global Priorities for Youth held in Helsinki, in October 2002.

Youth and health issues

An overview of the health situation of youth today is provided in this chapter, which also explores the serious health challenges this vulnerable group is facing within the context of local and global developments. Socio-economic, cultural, educational and other factors affecting young people’s health are examined, and reference is made to particular issues and areas of concern. Emphasis is given to the importance of involving young people in identifying problems and developing solutions to ensure that programmes, policies and health services address their needs.
