Adolescents are defined as young people between the ages of 10 and 19 years. Zambia recognizes the importance and significant impact that adolescents have on the overall health status of the country, including the attainment of the national health objectives and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In view of the foregoing, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has identified the need to strengthen Adolescent Health (ADH), by developing and implementing a national strategy, aimed at providing a comprehensive and coordinated response to ADH problems and needs in the country.
