Skip to 0 minutes and 13 secondsDAVID ROSS: So that was the week on the health of adolescents and young people. I hope that we've convinced you that adolescent health is a global public health priority, and that there's more to it than just sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Next week we'll be turning to reproductive health, as one of the key changes during adolescence is that the individual becomes sexually mature and able to reproduce.

Summary of Week 1

In Week 2 we move on to reproductive health, focusing on issues relating to family planning. Reproductive health is key in adolescence as an individual reaches sexual maturity and is able to reproduce.
