Integrated Discussions on adolescent health

Adolescent Health:

Reassessing the Passage to Adulthood

Judith Senderowitz

This paper includes data on adolescent health with an emphasis on reproduction. It assesses, by region, trends in sexual knowledge, contraceptive use, marriage, fertility, and STDs, including HIV HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), either of two closely related retroviruses that invade T-helper lymphocytes and are responsible for AIDS. There are two types of HIV: HIV-1 and HIV-2. HIV-1 is responsible for the vast majority of AIDS in the United States.  It also looks at related issues such as sexual abuse and nutritional and health problems. The paper also provides information about programs designed to reach adolescents and recommends legal, policy and program strategies to improve adolescent access to services and to enhance the quality of those services.
