National Initiative to Improve Adolescent Health

The National Initiative to Improve Adolescent Health (NIIAH or the National Initiative) is a collaborative effort to improve the health, safety, and well-being of adolescents and young adults ages 10–24 years.

The National Initiative was launched and is led by two federal agencies:

In conjunction with these federal agencies, a group of partner organizations helps to sustain the National Initiative.

Goals of the National Initiative

Working as a collaborative, the National Initiative partners have identified the following goals to guide their work:

  • Elevate national, state, and community focus on and commitment to the health, safety, positive development, and well-being of adolescents, young adults, and their families
  • Increase access to quality health and safety education and health care, including comprehensive general health, oral health, mental health, and substance abuse prevention and treatment services
  • Address the influence of social determinants on health, safety, and well-being
  • Improve health and safety outcomes in such areas as mortality, unintentional injury, violence, oral and mental health, tobacco and substance use, reproductive health, nutrition and physical activity, and the prevention of adult chronic diseases
  • Eliminate disparities in health, safety, and well-being among adolescents and young adults
