The Somali Adolescents & Youth - Boom or Gloom?

Publication

Different societies use different parameters for their definition of youth. Some societies use biological markers (the period between puberty and parenthood) while others use cultural markers to define youth as a distinct social status with accompanying roles, rituals and relationships. The proposed National Youth Policy by the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) refers to persons aged 15 to 34 years.

WHO identifies adolescence as the period in human growth and development that occurs after childhood and before adulthood, from ages 10 to 19 years.
