Online consultation with young people: What influences your health?

The next HBSC survey will take place in 2017/18 and we want young people to help us build it. We are asking anyone between the ages of 11 and 17 to complete a short survey online to let us know about the areas of health they think we should research.

Your answers are really important and we are very grateful to you for taking the time to respond. By completing this short survey you are making sure that researchers hear your voice and views when putting together the next HBSC questionnaire.

Complete the survey:

What influences your health? (English)
Co ovplyvnuje Tvoje zdravie? (Slovakian)

Currently the survey is available in English and Slovakian, but other languages will follow. Keep an eye on @HBSCstudy on twitter or check back here for updates.
