Laws are an intrinsic part of how civil society protects children and young people. The age of criminal responsibility is one such law #raisetheage. Good to see this initiative in Australia. @LancetYouth

Yes! Menstruation is a normal part of life for girls. We MUST provide appropriate facilities, resources and support to keep every girl at school, every day.

All are needed. Adolescent responsive health services are part of the solution. Help to lift families out of poverty is another. Schools that inspire student learning and support social connections matter. As do safe, inclusive communities @LancetYouth @PMNCH #WMHD2019

Again and again: younger women have worse health outcomes. This is why a focus on adolescent health is needed, in every field. @LancetYouth @FondationBotnar
