      Sweden is among the few countries where youth-friendly health-care services have been integrated within the public health system and sustained for a long time. Professionals considered that they should approach youths as equals, avoid adult-centric, patronizing attitudes and be aware of how their own prejudices about youths could affect their communication with youth people. Young people without adequate family support are particularly vulnerable to risky behavior and poor health and therefore often require additional support in health service settings Chapter 4. One result of such barriers and deficits is poorer health.

      This program is lost for almost three years in our health facility. Health services fulfill the needs of all young people. Any information that could expose the identity of the informants was removed from the transcripts. In addition, MOHSW staff conducted two-day workshops for them in several regions to explain why the national quality standards had been developed and what contribution they could make to ensure that they were achieved in health facilities under their jurisdiction.

      Here it is possible that they can come with an open question and then we help them place it in the right box. Informants also mentioned that those youths who might be in most need i. Recommendation 2: As part of an enhanced primary care system for adolescents, health care providers and health organizations should fo- cus attention on the particular needs of specific groups of adolescents who may be especially vulnerable to risky behavior or poor health because of selected population characteristics or other circumstances. Data collection tools were adapted from the WHO [ 8 ] and national guidelines.

Informants considered that ensuring that youth clinics were perceived as different from other health-care services was important, since young people must feel that they can come to the YC to consult on things not directly related to specific physical or mental problems. When these characteristics are ad- dressed in the design of health services for adolescents, these services can offer high-quality care that is particularly attuned to the needs of this age group.

Good health services for adolescents include population-focused as well as individual and family services since the environment in which adolescents live, as well as the supports they receive in the community, are important Chapter 4.
