    Keys to youth-friendly services: Ensuring confidentiality.

    International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]

    London, United Kingdom, IPPF, 2011 Mar. [8] p.

    Confidentiality is crucial in the provision of youth friendly services. Privacy and confidentiality are distinct concepts. Confidentiality ensures privacy. The promotion of young people's sexual and reproductive health can only be achieved through providing confidential services that encourage them to seek preventative care and counselling.

    Keys to youth-friendly services: Celebrating diversity.

    International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]

    London, United Kingdom, IPPF, 2011 Oct. [12] p.

    Young people are not a single homogenous group, but a diverse population whose sexual and reproductive health needs are complex, shifting and varied. Youth-friendly service delivery should be based on an understanding of and respect for each person's unique social, cultural and economic identity.

    Preventing HIV infections in young people.

    United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA]

    New York, New York, UNFPA, 2001 Dec. 5 p. (HIV Prevention Now Programme Briefs No. 3)

    Young people are the 'window of hope' in changing the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Preventing HIV infections among them is vital. Of the 40 million people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, one third are aged 15-24 years and roughly half were infected during their youth. This makes it imperative that young people be at the center of prevention actions, both in focus and in involvement, to ultimately halt the pandemic. As many behavioural lifestyles are formed during the early adolescent years, and as acquisition of HIV in young people is predominantly through sexual activities, this period in life provides the opportune time to positively influence behaviours, choices and lifestyles that will hopefully last into adulthood. Young people are our future and preventing HIV infections among them - NOW - represents sound investment for the future. In response, UNFPA has identified the prevention of HIV infection among young people as one of its strategic areas of focus (along with preventing HIV infection in pregnant women and comprehensive condom programming). Within the context of reproductive health, UNFPA must strive to build on and expand programmes that promote healthy adolescent development and ensure among sexually active young people, safer and responsible sexual behaviour. By doing this, UNFPA will help ensure young people are dually protected against STI/HIV infections and unwanted pregnancies. (excerpt)

    International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]

    In: Eye to eye, [compiled by] International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]. London, England, IPPF, 2001. 16-21.

    Through the use of clinics, youth centers, retail outlets, integrated facilities and other means, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) is ensuring that for the first time in many countries, young people can now access youth- friendly sexual and reproductive health services designed for young people where no other organization is providing them. There are a number of strategies to attract young people to services or to take services to young people but in each case the factors for success are linked to quality and the attributes of youth friendliness. IPPF affiliates have also shown how a broader approach to youth development can be used to achieve sexual and reproductive health related goals. (excerpt)
