The strategy document proposes a flexible, country-specific approach that reflects and respects differences in epidemiology. In addition, it outlines a strategic framework that is based on equity, the life course, and a public health approach. It defines principles to guide the implementation. It is intended to contribute to the definition of a new and common agenda for children and adolescents with Member States and partners, and guide the work of the Organization with Member States.
