The steady increase in the world’s population of young people indicates the need for programs that would maximize their potentials as well as promoting health and wellbeing. Without proper support, we are setting our next generation towards poor health trajectories and social disadvantage. Despite several campaigns and strategies set at international, national, and local levels, interventions and programs need to evolve and utilize the current best available evidence as the adolescent population remains dynamic.
This Special Issue aims to understand the protective characteristics and risks of young people, especially from disadvantaged settings, through the health and social science perspective. It also explores stories and learnings from adolescent-responsive interventions, initiatives, and programs which aimed to strengthen and empower young people to make decisions about their health and wellbeing. This issue also encourages papers regarding the impact of COVID-19 on adolescents.
