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.

Young people aged 15 years of age were asked how many times over the last 12 months they had been injured and needed to be treated by a doctor or nurse. Response options ranged from no injury to four times or more. Findings presented here show the proportions who reported having a medically attended injury at least once in the last 12 months.
