Youth Health 2006 Conference

Young people are facing enormous challenges and difficulties, many
of which are substantially different to those experienced in earlier
and less troubled times. The fact that many of these risky
behaviours and problems are occurring at increasingly younger ages
underscores the urgency of addressing adolescent health issues in a
more effective way.
