Stat is a one-stop platform for common youth-related health matters.
Youths, defined as "persons between the age of 15 and 24" according to the United Nations, make up 16% of the global population. Stat aims to raise awareness of the three most common health issues related to youths worldwide - sexual and reproductive health, mental health, and substance use disorders including alcohol and tobacco.
Stat, a jargon widely used amongst medical professionals, is derived from the latin word statim, which means "immediately". In the fast-paced modern world, we expect more given to us within a short space of time. This website provides all the basic information you need; stripping away all the medical jargon, we have broken down the topics into bite-sized information for you.
