Abstract

This chapter reviews all causes of fatal injury in adolescents (10-19 years of age) in the context of other causes of death, both globally and regionally. It also reviews nonfatal injury causes to the extent that currently available data allow and explores issues of data limitations. The public health response to fatal and nonfatal injury in adolescents is discussed within current theoretical approaches and proven effective interventions. While an overview of all adolescent injury is provided, the main focus is on unintentional injury. Case studies are presented for several existing and emerging injury problems during adolescence, and the public health response.
