Over the past decade there has been significant investment in strengthening child health programmes and services in Fiji. This has brought improved health outcomes for neonates, infants and children. However to date, there has been less investment in the health and wellbeing of adolescents.
The purpose of this document is to provide the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MoHMS) and other government Ministries and their partners with a concise review and analysis of the health needs of adolescents in Fiji. The focus is on physical and mental health (including sexual and reproductive health, mental disorder and substance use, nutrition and rheumatic heart disease). Some relevant social determinants are highlighted (particularly education and employment), as these are important drivers for adolescent health and well-being.
