New Series on Emerging Issues in Adolescence Health in LMIC Now Available
This month the Journal of Adolescent Health released a new series of articles that examine the emerging issues in adolescence for low and middle income countries. The focus of this series is on the emerging science in adolescent health, and pays particular attention to epigenetics, neurodevelopment and addiction sciences. The supplement highlights the implications of these emerging issues for adolescent non communicable diseases (NCDs) and suggests new considerations for those working in adolescent programme and policy development.
The research suggests that genetics itself explains little about disease, and highlights the need to understand more about the interaction between biology and environment – epigenetics – in explaining adolescent health and illness. To view the series, click here.
