Position Statement: Youth-Friendly Services

Date: January 11, 2018

Healthy Teen Network maintains that for youth to enjoy their universal right to health care, health care services must be delivered to them in a manner that makes it easy and comfortable for them to seek out and receive the services they need. We consider health care services to be youth-friendly when they are confidential, equitable, and accessible. Offering youth-friendly services is of great importance because it can increase youths’ utilization of clinical services and have positive impacts on their current and future well-being.
