7.7 Making health facilities more youth friendly

Last update: 28 November 2023

Since the programmes mentioned in this chapter are directed at the young community, many of the proposals aim to implement methods for such programmes to be more accessible to the aforementioned community.

To highlight the interest of the different agencies in bringing communication closer to young people through social networks or mobile devices. An example of this is the Suicidal Behavior Hotline at the number 024 "Call for Life", which will be joined by a chat service, with young people in particular in mind.

It is worth mentioning the cases of programmes such as PERSEO, since one of its strategies of prevention of sedentariness and diffusion of activities includes the use of resources for mobile devices and the Internet, as a way of publishing games and information on healthy physical activity. The evaluation depends of the centres that decide to implement this programme, which are key for the further developing of more specific activities in the frame of PERSEO.

Also, the web Activilandia, which constitutes part of the Strategy for Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Prevention (NAOS), is a Virtual Theme Park focused on children between 6 and 12 years old. With its audiovisual contents in the form of games, videos and music, it specifically pursues a healthy, varied, less calorie and balanced diet; the reduction of sedentariness by promoting the practice of habitual or regular physical activity and the promotion of health.
