The health of young people in the youth justice system

  • Background and Aims

    The health of young people in the youth justice system: A global health is an international project of the Justice Health Group. The project takes the form of a series of three papers, which aim to review the health of adolescents who come into contact with the youth justice system globally. The first paper is a global scoping review that will describe the health of adolescents in detention. The second and third papers will review what is known about the health-related trajectories of adolescents who experience youth detention.
