To promote child health in Europe, the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe developed the child and adolescent health strategy (2015–2020), which was adopted by all Member States of the WHO European Region. The strategy’s implementation was monitored through country profiles compiling existing health data and a survey sent to all 53 European ministries of health. Responses from 48 countries are described graphically, quantitatively and qualitatively. This report helps to review achievements and address gaps in realizing the full potential for the health and well-being of children and adolescents.
