Health Care Reform: Opportunities for Improving Adolescent Health

This classic report has its roots in efforts to reform health care in 1993. NAHIC coordinated a meeting of experts to recommend how health care reform could best address the needs of adolescents. The meeting, convened with support from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Services and Resources Administration, led to this report that addresses benefits, financing, special populations, training of professionals, and the role of public health. It is a joint publication of NAHIC and the National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health (NCEMCH).

Although policy has changed since 1993, adolescents’ health care needs have changed little and the recommendations remain salient.
