1.2 million adolescents die of causes largely preventable: WHO
- WHO’s report states that around 1.2 billion people, or 1 in 6 of the world’s population, are adolescents aged 10 to 19.  Road injury tops the list as leading cause of death among 10-to 19-years-olds globally killing over 115,000 people. Second came lower respiratory infections and third self-harm. The leading cause of death differs significantly when the regions are separated by sex, religion and age.
