7.7 Making health facilities more youth friendly

Last update: 28 November 2023

There are no special top-level initiatives to make health facilities more youth-friendly.

However, we can consider a special system of children and adolescents practitioners and children's hospitals as well as children's departments in hospitals as a youth friendly environment.

The only Initiative, which is focused only on babies, is the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative by the WHO, strongly promoted in the Czech Republic.

In 2022, the General Faculty Hospital in Prague opened a doctor's office for Ukrainian children. Care is intended for newborns, children and youth up to 19 years of age. Most services are covered by public health insurance.
