For almost 30 years HBSC has been a pioneer cross-national study gaining insight into young people's well-being, health behaviours and their social context. This research collaboration with the WHO Regional Office for Europe is conducted every four years in 43 countries and regions across Europe and North America. With adolescents making about one sixth of the world's population, HBSC uses its findings to inform policy and practice to improve the lives of millions of young people. [more]
HBSC recently partnered with Wikigender, the UN Foundation, the EU-LAC Foundation, European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), ECLAC and PARIS21 for an online discussion on data gaps on gender equality.
The discussion ran for 3 weeks and included a new theme each week. Including: women’s socio-economic empowerment, violence against women, and women’s civic and political participation.

The summary report will be presented at a side event organised by the OECD Development Centre, Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) in March 2014, during the 58th session on UN the Commission on the Status of Women in New York.
