CAH, with the assistance of Department of Population and Family Health of Johns Hopkins University, undertook to identify, describe, and analyze current projects in developing countries that assist parents of adolescents in promoting healthy adolescent development and preventing health risks.

Ultimately, this effort identified 34 projects around the world, by means of searching computerized databases, reviews of the internet, materials such as newsletters, reports, government documents, bulletins, conference proceedings, and interviews with individuals and organizations in both developed and developing countries working in fields related to adolescent health. Descriptions of these projects were compiled based on interviews with project staff as well as available materials, and prepared as a document entitled "Summaries of projects in developing countries assisting the parents of adolescents".
