Sociologically speaking, study of youth in terms of demography gives us an apparent sight on population groups with special reference to the youth. It is sad to say that many sociologists do not have good expertise in demography. Population is a phenomenon ever prone to change, and if we undermine it, problems of all kinds may emerge. Earlier, and for thousands of years the size of population worldwide was low mainly because of high death rates for all age groups. Later and especially since 1650, population started to increase more in developed world, and to a lesser extent in developing world. Such a gap created the problem of health security especially in countries with unbalanced age groups. Currently, many Asian and African countries are facing health security with special reference to their youth whose number is huge too. Such youth are at the brink of economic and health poverty. Many of the young girls and boys needing medical treatment cannot access it. Many females needing hospital services for their delivery, cannot easily get it. Similarly, increasing number of male youth affected by drugs and narcotics known as neurological patients cannot easily be treated and looked after. However, demographic study of population plays an important role in the health security of youth in Asian countries.
