"Now in 2020, we see an urgent need to make child and adolescent health and wellbeing the focus of a special campaign across our journals as progress made is stalling or reversing and new political and environmental realities are emerging," the journal's editorial staff wrote (Vol. 395:10218, p. 89).
To that end, the Lancet said it will highlight child and adolescent health throughout the year through milestone publications, events, and initiatives, including the following:
- Partnering with the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund to kickstart a new global movement prioritizing children's health
- Promoting the Commission on Women, Children, and Adolescent Health in China
- Highlighting a series on physical activity, with new recommendations for adolescents
- Launching a series on adolescent nutrition at the upcoming Tokyo Global Nutrition Summit
The journal plans to develop a special communications strategy to support its campaign and facilitate partnerships with as many other groups as possible.
