Abstract Introduction
Data around young people's health and behaviour are vital to understanding young people's needs and commissioning services. Key Data on Young People presents a compendium of publicly available data on young people aged between 10-24. The latest edition will be published to coincide with this conference in September 2019.
Method
In this comprehensive data review we focus specifically on the health of 10-24 year olds in the UK, presenting up to date on living circumstances, education and employment, information about health behaviours and lifestyle, sexual health, mental and physical health, and use of health care services. We also clarify recent trends in inequalities in health, highlighting groups of young people whose health may need extra resources and investment.
Results
Recent trends in young people's health show both positive and negative patterns. Many of the key findings relate to our ability to help young people to cope with long term conditions, the transition to adulthood, and important messages relating to inequalities. The presentation will draw on these findings to outline essential components of an evidence informed public health response to this age group.
Conclusions
Young people aged 10-24 face a particular pattern of health inequalities relating to their life stage, many of which could be tackled with public health initiatives. Multi-sector policy recommendations need to focus on these vulnerable groups in order to improve youth health outcomes and thus the health of the future adult population. External funding details Key Data on Young People 2019 was funded by the Health Foundation.
