Global Accelerated Action for the Health of Adolescents (AA-HA!): Guidance to Support Country Implementation
The AA-HA! Guidance note supports national-level policy-makers and program managers in planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating programs that respond to the health needs of adolescents in their countries. AA-HA! Guidance follows the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016–2030), and shows that in many cases adolescents who suffer from mental health disorders, substance use or poor nutrition cannot obtain critical prevention and care services. The report shows that most adolescent deaths can be prevented with good health services, education, and social support.
