Young People

The health of adolescents and young people is affected by a variety of factors including social and environmental aspects. Depending on these factors, problems in adolescence can vary considerably, from minor behavioural questions to severely disabling illnesses. The European Union aims to ensure that policies and programmes across the EU take into consideration the real needs of young people.
