7.7 Making health facilities more youth friendly
One of the goals in the Government's youth health strategy #Young people health – the Norwegian Government’s strategy for young people’s health 2016 – 2021 [#Ungdomshelse – regjeringens strategi for ungdomshelse 2016-2021] is related to improvement of health facilities for young people though better access, increaased multidisciplinary collaboration and good fast track options in all parts of the health and care services.
The cross-sector collaboration program DigiUng aims at coordinating cross-sector digital interventions for young people aged 13 to 20 years on the website www.ung.no. Young people can gain access to cross-sector information and services tailored to their age and needs. The goal of the program is to allow young people to access information, ask anonymous questions to a nationwide interdisciplinary panel of experts, search for the closest help services, find certified apps and other digital self-help tools, chat with a wide-ranging group of volunteer organizations, book appointments with healthcare providers and carry-out virtual consultations.
