New terminology : AYA
The World Health Organization defines adolescents as people aged 10 to 19 years, youth as those 15 to 24 and young people those 10 to 24.
The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM) defines young adults as those 18 to 25 years, leading to the new concept of “AYA” (Adolescents and Young Adults).
In this website, the words adolescents and young people are used interchangeably, but the focus is on individuals 10 to 19 years of age, who have specific health needs linked with their bio-psychosocial development.
