About the Special Edition:
Lately the increasing interest of academics, clinical and public health specialists as well as policy makers can be observed in the theme of adolescents’ health problems prevention. There is an increasing amount of analyses and researches on the effectiveness of implemented strategies and programs dedicated to the prevention of adolescent health problems. The experience of recent years shows that the methodological standards of such interventions have been continuously improved, which may favour the promotion of evidence-based approaches. At the same time, new possibilities of reaching children and youth and their environment (family, school, community) through modern media are opening up. In line with the youth engagement approach, young people can be not only a program recipient, but also a partner building this program.
