This commentary explores the current boundaries of policy thinking about adolescence. It suggests that policy-even that designed to address adolescent sexuality and reproductive health-move substantially beyond the confines of the health sector in looking for solutions. The great diversity of adolescent needs-by age, gender, schooling, and marital status-are highlighted in making the case for a multisectoral adolescent policy.
