The following paper summarizes effective adolescent health interventions (e.g., adolescent sexual and reproductive health interventions, micronutrient supplementation, nutrition interventions for pregnant adolescents, interventions to improve vaccine uptake among adolescents, and interventions for substance abuse), and includes a commentary on areas where further research is needed to draw conclusions. It is the final paper of a series on adolescent health that was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health (2016) that may be of interest to you.
