The Millennium Development Goals Report 2013

This annual report examines progress in achieving the eight Millennium Development Goals. With the deadline for the MDGs on the horizon (2015), progress can be reported in most areas, despite the continuing impact of the global economic and financial crisis. For instance, maternal mortality has been reduced by 47 per cent, although much more progress is needed to reach the goal of a 75 per cent reduction.

Health and Health Behaviour among young people

The series Health Policy for Children and Adolescents (HEPCA) is a WHO document series mainly based on results of the international survey “Health Behaviour in School-aged Children” (HBSC) and on other relevant international studies. It focuses on the implications of scientific results for health policy in developed countries. The target groups are politicians and experts, especially those concerned with the health of young people. The HEPCA series consists of reports on particular topics of high political relevance, including survey data on child and adolescent health, reports on specific health situations and suggestions for future investment in health policies for the young generation.

Social determinants of health and well-being among young people

This HBSC report is a crucial resource in deepening the understanding of social determinants that are known to affect young people’s health and well-being. Its broad areas of focus – social context, health outcomes, health behaviours and risk behaviours – encapsulate key factors that influence young people’s health and well-being, opportunities and life chances. The report provides strong evidence and data that will support countries in formulating their own policies and programmes to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
