Health behaviour in school-aged children (HBSC) – a WHO collaborative study in 50 countries
For over 30 years, the HBSC study has been assessing the health behaviours of young people in 50 countries. With this data base it is possible to identify and respond to health risks and inequalities among young people. This is particularly relevant because health problems that arise during this critical stage of life can have an impact even in later life.
