Abstract

  Adolescents constitute a large percentage of population, 21.3% of the total population of India is of adolescent age group. A wide range of issues and concerns faced by adolescents in India include nutritional deficiency, reproductive health problems, sexually transmitted diseases and mental and physical stress related problems. Many adolescent girls and boys are sexually active but lack information and skill for self protection. Communication gap exists with parents and other adults (lack of family connectedness). Habit and behavior picked up during adolescence have a lifelong impact. Adolescence is the last chance to correct these mal-habits.
