    Article - En anglais

    The recent literature on the determinants of adolescent health is reviewed.

    Four definitions of adolescent health are presented : successful transition to adulthood, successful coping, lack of mortality and morbidity, and healthy behaviors and risk avoidance.

    The review of determinants of health is presented within a framework focused upon adolescent characteristics, aspects of adolescents'immediate environments, and adolescents'ongoing activities and aspirations.

    An expanded framework which considers societal and structural factors and adolescent health is considered and a proposed research agenda presented.
