  • Children and adolescents, including those from vulnerable contexts, monitor their health risks, adopt healthy lifestyles at home, at school and in the community and interact with their doctors and carers, also through the means of digitally enabled solutions, better health literacy, training and critical thinking.
  • Thanks to better co-creation, training, digital and health literacy, children, adolescents, parents and carers across Europe access and use person-centred, widely available solutions for children and adolescents health, care and wellbeing, appropriate to a rapidly changing and increasingly digitalised society, also increasing the risk of digital addiction.
