An operational structural determinants framework for adolescents

As a follow up to a think piece on Tackling Structural and Social Issues to Reduce Inequalities in Children's Outcomes in Low- to Middle-income Countries (2013), authored by a team led by Sir Michael Marmot, this work will provide lessons for the application of a social and structural determinants framework to improve adolescent well-being outcomes.

This work seeks to develop a nuanced understanding of the policy processes aimed at improving a selected set of high-impact adolescent outcomes, including barriers and challenges to an integrated approach and through this analysis, and building on existing frameworks, develop a unified structural determinants framework that can be operationalised in countries. This work then seeks to apply the refined framework described in part to scale up improvements in child marriage outcomes in two countries.
