The theme of 2017 year’s report is where’s the accountability to adolescents? Adolescents are 1.2 billion strong. They hold the central promise for achieving the equitable, sustainable world we all want.

The IAP report calls for swift paradigm shifts to transform accountability to propel progress forward for humanity under the Global Strategy and the SDGs. It also underscores that without independent accountability and citizen engagement, there can be no genuine accountability, and promises lose their meaning.

Developed from a review of evidence and stakeholder testimony and contributions, the 2017 report centres on accountability to adolescents as well as broader measures for accelerating progress on women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health, with a focus on equity.
