Adolescents have moved to the centre stage of global health and development following the recent announcement of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health. On May 10, The Lancet will publish Our Future: A Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing, a report that brings together perspectives from public health, economics, political and social science, behavioural science and neuroscience to consider strategies to advance adolescent health and wellbeing. It reviews the current knowledge base for action, for engagement and empowerment of young people around their health, and considers the policy and legal frameworks for adolescent health and wellbeing.

Professor Russell Viner from the UCL Institute of Child Health is hosting the launch as one of the four leaders of the Commission, along with colleagues from the University of Melbourne, Columbia University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
