          Abstract

          Adolescentes y jóvenes representan 30% de la población de las Américas. Su salud es clave para el progreso social, económico y político de la Región. Sin embargo, con demasiada frecuencia sus necesidades no figuran en la agenda pública ni política y los gobiernos no consideran prioritario invertir en ellos. La Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS) propone un nuevo marco conceptual centrado en el desarrollo humano y en la promoción de la salud dentro del contexto de la familia, la comunidad y el desarrollo social, político y económico. El gran desafío de los próximos años será utilizar este marco para implantar programas integrales, recolectar información desagregada, mejorar el acceso a los servicios, el ambiente donde viven adolescentes y jóvenes, el vínculo entre escuelas, familias y comunidades, así como apoyar la transición a la edad adulta, con una amplia participación juvenil y coordinación interinstitucional e intersectorial.

          Translated abstract

          Adolescents and young adults make up 30% of the population of the Americas. Their health is a key factor in the social, economic, and political development of the region. Nevertheless, their needs are frequently excluded from governments' public and political agendas. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) advances a new conceptual framework focusing on human development and health promotion within the context of family and community, and of social, political, and economic development. The challenge in the near future is to use this framework for establishing comprehensive programs, collect disaggregated data, improve access to services, adolescents' environs, the ties between schools, families and communities, as well as improve and support the transition to adulthood through youth participation and interinstitutional and intersectoral collaboration.
