The WHO Regional Office for Europe supports Member States in improving adolescent health by recommending comprehensive, multisectoral and evidence-informed adolescent health approaches; by delineating the critical contribution of the health sector; by fostering actions towards reducing inequalities; and by addressing gender as a key determinant of adolescent health. This publication aims to support this work in the framework of the European strategy for child and adolescent health and development, and is part of the WHO Regional Office for Europe contribution to the development of a new policy framework for Europe, Health 2020, for which the WHO Regional Office for Europe has been mandated by the 53 Member States.

Social and emotional health among adolescent girls and boys – what do we know? What are the explanations behind the differences among adolescent girls and boys? The publication includes two parts. The first part is a summary table of effective interventions and good practices for promoting well-being. The second part explains the impact of gender norms, values and discrimination on the health of adolescents relevant to promoting well-being.
