The WHO Europe Child and Adolescent Health Database (CAHD) provides a set of statistics based on indicators related to the health and well-being of children and adolescents. The statistics were collated from a variety of databases as a joint effort between WHO program divisions and collaborating centres and partners. The database was constructed for the purpose of supporting the Child and Adolescent Health and Development Strategy (2015), providing the relevant information for monitoring progress on child and adolescent health indicators in the 53 member states of the WHO European Region.

The joint monitoring framework (JMF) is used for reporting on indicators under three monitoring frameworks: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Health 2020 and the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) 2013–2020. The Regional Committee for Europe adopted the JMF in September 2018.

The majority of JMF indicators in the Gateway are linked to existing databases in the Gateway.

Indicator notes
Source: Health Behavior in School-aged Children, www.hbsc.org. Young people aged 11, 13 or 15 years of age were asked how much they weigh without clothes and how tall they are without shoes, and to record these in country appropriate units (centimetres versus inches, pounds versus kilograms). These data were (re)coded in centimetres and kilograms, respectively, to compute the body mass index (BMI) as weight (kg) divided by height (m) 2 . The analysis presented here uses the WHO growth standards. Denmark excludes data from Greenland.
