BACKGROUND: Given country demands for support in the training of community health workers (CHWs) to accelerate progress towards reaching the Millennium Development Goals in sexual and reproductive health and maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (SR/MNCAH), the United Nations Health Agencies conducted a synthesis of existing training resource packages for CHWs in different components of SR/MNCAH to identify gaps and opportunities and inform efforts to harmonize approaches to developing the capacity
The AHP delivered a popular project to GPs, GP clinics, schools, school counsellors and students, which built the capacity of divisions, GPs, and schools to improve adolescent health
Evaluating a program to build data capacity for core public health functions in local maternal child and adolescent health
programs in california.12.
Work group V: increasing the capacity of schools, neighborhoods, and communities to improve adolescent health
CONCLUSIONS: During changing economic and health care environments, we found that strong structural capacity enhanced local health department EPHS performance for maternal, child, and adolescent health
Work group IV: increasing the capacity of parents, families, and adults living with adolescents to improve adolescent health
Also, improving the availability of trained personnel in these areas of health, culturally sensitive evidence based approaches and capacity building in the primary-care approach is essential to ensure the viability of adolescent health
-care in this country.
The key objectives of the programme are to make health services more accessible and acceptable to adolescents, establish national standards and criteria for adolescent health care in clinics throughout the country, and build the capacity of health
care workers to provide quality services.
THE CHIP WORK TEAMS: Of 12 self-managed work teams formed in 1996, 7 are still meeting in some capacity--addressing access to care for the underinsured and uninsured, chronic disease management in underserved areas, community diabetes care, health education and access to care for African immigrants (new Americans), adolescent health, mental health
, and violence prevention.
(ii) adolescent health (perceived adolescent physical and mental health, presence of an adolescent physical health problem or mental health problem, medication intake); and (iii) parent motivation (perceived adolescent weight category, concern about adolescent weight, importance of adolescent weight, confidence in adolescent capacity to change weight, priority of adolescent weight loss, discrepancy between adolescent
current and ideal weight, previous weight loss attempts), was significant (χ2 (16) = 35.19, P = 0.004) accounting for 12.4-16.5% (95% confidence interval) of treatment initiation variance.
OBJECTIVES: To identify specific adolescent sub-populations; to evaluate the health data available regarding these populations related to 21 key national adolescent health objectives from Healthy People 2010; and to make recommendations for improving data capacity to further efforts to reduce health
disparities among adolescents.
For 1,328 adolescents between 11 and 17 years of age, data on cardiorespiratory fitness (Physical working capacity 170, PWC(170)) and familial and adolescent health
behavioral factors were collected.
