School Health and Nutrition: Reach and Relevance for Adolescents
Adolescence is considered a window of opportunity because the critical developmental changes that occur during this period are sensitive to intervention. Investments targeted to adolescents build upon interventions in earlier ages and support better health, nutrition, and education outcomes as children transition to adolescence and adulthood. Health and nutrition interventions delivered through schools improve adolescent wellbeing, supports learning objectives, and strengthen human capital formation.
This event is designed to showcase a suite of tools designed to guide program planners through some of the key questions that arise in program development and investment prioritization to support adolescents in achieving their full potential. This dissemination event will engage World Bank TTLs, technical bodies, and external funding agencies to discuss how these tools can be widely applied in practice.
