The role of medical students in promoting adolescent health: a survey of risk behaviours among medical students in selected countries in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
AbstractAdolescence is a time when young people, who are no longer children but are not yet adults, experience new ideas, relationships and lifestyles, and adopt behaviours and practices that may have lifelong consequences. From a community health perspective, it is important to monitor trends both in risk taking and in health promotion behaviours and to report their prevalence, thus providing data for policy-making and priority-setting and for the planning and evaluation of interventions. This publication presents the results of a survey conducted by the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA) from various Arab countries, along with the Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean, on risk behaviours among medical students, including smoking, alcohol use and illicit drug use
