Children and adolescents (those aged 0–19 years) make up almost 30% of the world's female population, yet their specific healthcare needs often slip between the gaps of pediatrics and adult women's health. Pediatric and adolescent gynecology is the clinical field that endeavors to address the reproductive health needs of this age group.
The environment and psychosocial well-being—social determinants of health—have direct bearing on reproductive health, affecting menstrual cycles, menstrual hygiene, and risks for unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Often, in this population, diagnosis and management are distinct from those for adult women.
Preventive health strategies to improve reproductive health through vaccination, improved access to hygiene supplies, and contraception are also of increased importance in this young population.
