UNAIDS: WHO and UNAIDS launch new standards to improve adolescent care
“New Global Standards for quality health care services for adolescents developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNAIDS aim to help countries improve the quality of adolescent health care. … WHO and UNAIDS Global Standards for quality health care services for adolescents recommend making services more ‘adolescent friendly,’ providing free or low-cost consultations, and making medically accurate age-appropriate health information available. They also highlight the need for adolescents to be able to access services without necessarily having to make an appointment or requiring parental consent…” (10/6).
