Improving the Health of Adolescents & Young Adults: A Guide for States and Communities is a companion to Healthy People 2010, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ comprehensive, nationwide health promotion and disease prevention agenda. The document helps communities and individuals translate the Healthy People 2010 objectives that are key to adolescent health and safety into a vision for improving adolescent health and well-being. It provides a framework for helping communities to establish priorities, take collective action, and measure progress toward the shared goal of improving the health, safety, and well-being of their adolescents and young adults. We believe this guide will serve communities and States and be an excellent starting point for new and evolving efforts that foster the healthy development of our Nation’s youth.
