The article focuses on the role of general practitioners (GPs) in promoting the health of adolescents around the globe. It mentions the ability of GPs to prevent disease, distress and death in the 19-24 years age group through a biographical-biological approach as health problems of young people co-occur with their emotional and social needs. It also notes the five features in "An Agenda for Change" of the World Health Organization (WHO) including accessibility, equity and effectiveness.
