  2. 2. INTRODUCTION• World-wide, estimates of the number of adolescents and young adults who live with a disability vary widely.• Estimating the number of disabled young people is complex, for two reasons: a) The first is that frequently, disabled young people are grouped together with children or adults, blocking attempts to estimate their numbers as a distinct group. b)The second is that definitions of disability vary widely.• In some nations, only individuals with significant disabilities are identified; in others, even those with mild disabilities are included.

  3. 3. Definition of Adolescent with special needs Defined as those (children/adolescents) who have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition. And who require health and relatedservices of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally. Willis JH Adolescent with special needs Free Powerpoint Templates Page 3
  4. 4. Aetiology• The etiology of developmental disabilities and special health care needs is complex.• Adolescents may have physical impairments, developmental delays or chronic medical conditions that are caused by or associated with the following factors: Chromosome anomalies, genetic conditions Congenital infections Inborn errors of metabolism Prematurity Neurologic insults Neural tube defects Trauma Maternal substance abuse Environmental toxins• For some conditions, the etiology is unknown. These conditions may cause physical, emotional, or behavioral problems that are challenging for the child and for the family. Free Powerpoint Templates Page 4

  13. 13. Overview of HIVYoung people are particularly vulnerable to HIV infection because of risky sexual behaviour and substance use, because they lack access to accurate and personalized HIV information and prevention services, and for a host of other social and economic reasons. SOURCE: UNAIDS. 2002. Report on the Global HIV/AIDS Epidemic: July 2002. GenevaYoung people aged 15–24 years accounted for an estimated 42% of new adult HIV infections worldwide in 2010.

  14. 14. HIV - Malaysian scenario..In Malaysia, 27% of new infections are amongst teens and youth aged between 13 to 29 years old. It is likely that people infected with HIV before the age of 30 were infected in their twenties and sometimes even during their teens. SOURCE: Ministry of Health : December 2008 statisticsOf the 87 710 cumulative total of HIV cases since 1998, 2 122 (2.4%) were individuals aged less than 19 years old. 1.4% of all HIV cases were found to be between the ages of 13-19 years.

  16. 16. Sexual Health – Malaysian scenario• Todays youth are confronted with numerous issues regarding their sexual health. This is evident in studies done in Malaysia, such as the National Population and Family Planning Board Study o Reproductive Health and Sexuality in 1994 which found that adolescents aged 10 – 19 years old were already engaged in sexual activities, though the prevalence was less than 1%. Ten years down the road (2004), a similar study found that the prevalence of sexual intercourse among adolescents had risen to 2.2%; and 0.3% claimed that they had been raped or sodomised.• SPEECH BY YB DATO‘ SRI LIOW TIONG LAI MINISTER OF HEALTH MALAYSIA• AT THE 9th WORLD CONGRESS INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR ADOLESCENT HEALTH Free Powerpoint Templates Page 16

  34. 34. BARRIERS AND ISSUESIn general, studies reported low levels of awareness and knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases, with the exception of HIV/AIDS. Although, as shown by some of the findings on condom use, knowledge does not always translate into behaviour change, adolescents sex education is important for STD prevention, and the school setting plays an important role. Beyond HIV/AIDS, attention should be paid to infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis FN Samkange- Zeeb et al 2011 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 34
  35. 35. ―The higher prevalence of STDs among adolescents also may reflect multiple barriers to accessing quality STD prevention services, including lack of health insurance or ability to pay, lack of transportation, discomfort with facilities and services designed for adults, and concerns about confidentiality. Traditionally, intervention efforts have targeted individual-level factors associated with STD risk which do not address higher-level factors(e.g., peer norms and media influences) that may also influence behaviors.‖ DiClemente RJ et al 2007;32 ―Interventions for at-risk adolescents and young adults that address underlying aspects of the social and cultural conditions that affect sexual risk-taking behaviors are needed, as are strategies designed to improve the underlying social conditions themselves. “ Sieving RE et al 2011 and Upchurch DM et al 2004 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 35
  36. 36. Perceived barriers to care included lack of knowledge of STDs and available services, cost, shame associated with seeking services, long clinic waiting times, discrimination, and urethral specimen collection methods. Perceived features of ideal STD services included locations close to familiar places, extended hours, and urine-basedscreening. Television was perceived as the most effective route of disseminating STD information. Further research is warranted to evaluate improving convenience, efficiency, andprivacy of existing services; adding urine-based screening and new services closer to neighborhoods; and using mass media to disseminate STD information as strategies to increase STD screening. E.C Tilson et al Adolescents who view STDs as stigmatizing have a reduced likelihood of being screened, but it is unclear whether this relationship reflects their care seeking or providers practice of offering STD screening at a routine health visit (Cunningham SD 2009) Free Powerpoint Templates Page 36

  72. 72. Why invest in adolescent health and development?1. Investing in adolescent health and development yields benefits for the adolescent and for society Adolescents represent over 20% of the total population in most countries of the Western Pacific Region. They are a vast current and future resource for their countries. Adolescence carries the highest risks of morbidity and mortality from certain causes, including accidents and injuries, early pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. This is an important reason to focus health prevention efforts on adolescents. Healthy and developed adolescents have a better chance of becoming healthy, responsible, and productive adults, leading to greater skills, fewer work days lost to illness, longer working lives and increased productivity and progress. Free Powerpoint Templates Page 72
  73. 73. 2. Investing in adolescent health anddevelopment promotes equity and social justice Adolescents health needs are qualitatively different from those of other age groups. They face puberty, rapid emotional development, increasing independence, and a range of new choices. Adolescents are a heterogenous group who live in varying situations and have different needs. Gender inequalities can influence the pace and quality of adolescent health and development. For example, household-level, gender-based discrimination in health and nutrition can result in anaemia, a prevalent condition among young girls in the Region. In settings where early marriage is the norm, early and repeated pregnancies put adolescent girls health and survival at risk. At the same time, ideals of "macho"behaviour may expose adolescent boys to greater risk of violence and injury. Free Powerpoint Templates Page 73
  74. 74. 3. Investing in adolescent health anddevelopment promotes human rights Adolescents have basic rights to health and development. These rights are, on their own, an important reason to invest in adolescents. Giving attention to the health and development of adolescents promotes the realization of their rights in other areas too, including their rights as children, women and workers.

  75. 75. Other reasons why we need to invest in the health anddevelopment of adolescents They are a vulnerable group of population Helps prevent deaths that occur globally due to road traffic injury, violence, substance abuse and chronic tobacco use. Improve the health and well-being of millions of adolescent Promote the adoption of healthy lifestyles They is economic benefit is helping adolescents as they in turn are a return on investment by harnessing a healthy workforce Increases the educational and employment opportunities Being a signatory to the UN Convention to the Rights of a Child which clearly states that adolescents have the right to obtain the health information and services they need to grow and develop to reach their full potential Free Powerpoint Templates Page 75

  77. 77. RECOMENDATIONSThe American Medical Association has brought out Guidelines for AdolescentsPreventive Services (GAPS) in 1997.It is a comprehensive set of recommendations developed to provide aframework for the organization and content of clinical preventive healthservices.Topics addressed by GAPS :- Promoting parent‘s ability to respond to health needs of their adolescents Promoting adjustment to puberty and adolescence Promoting safety and injury prevention Promoting physical fitness Promoting healthy dietary habits and preventing eating disorders and obesity Promoting healthy psychosexual adjustment and preventing the negative health consequences of sexual behaviors Preventing hypertension Preventing hyperlipidemia Free Powerpoint Templates Page 77
  78. 78. KEY HOME MESSAGES1. As many of the common morbidities and moralities of adolescence are related to preventable health conditions associated with behavioral, environmental and social causes, it is important that preventive services for this age group reflect these issues.2. It is important to both reinforce positive health behaviors (e.g. exercise and good nutrition) while discouraging potentially health-risk behaviors (e.g. unsafe sexual practices, smoking, unsafe driving etc.).3. As lifetime habits may form during this age group, it is an important time to implement health promotion and preventive services.4. Evidence based research on preventive services guidelines is only in its infancy. This is an important area of research given the limitation on health resources and the focus on evidence-based medicine. Free Powerpoint Templates Page 78
