Findings from HBSC survey have been published in the latest WHO/HBSC International report: Social determinants of health and well-being among young people. The report presents data from 39 countries on over 60 health and social indicators.
HBSC's flagship policy report contributes to our understanding of the social determinants of young people's health, by highlighting inequalities by gender, age, socioeconomic conditions and geography. Through this report, the HBSC study aims to supply up-to-date information needed by policy-makers, nongovernmental organizations, and professionals in sectors such as health, education, social services, justice and recreation, to protect and promote young people's health.
