Laws and policies affecting adolescent health / by John M. Paxman and Ruth Jane Zuckerman
Other TitlesLois et politiques ayant une incidence sur la santé des adolescents
AbstractA sourcebook of diversified laws and policies used by different countries to protect the health of adolescents. Legislation posing constraints to the development of adolescent health care programmes is also summarized. The aim is to give policy makers and administrators a complete reference to the existence and workability of an array of alternative legal and policy approaches governing health. Following two introductory chapters, which include a broad discussion of the legal capacity of minors, the book surveys world legislation on 13 specific problems perceived to be of major concern to adolescent health. These range from sexual nd reproductive problems to occupational concerns, from mental illness to drug and alcohol abuse, from handicaps to accidents and the policies designed to prevent them. The book also examines the ways in which law and policy have been utilized to ensure greater access by adolescents to health care. Each chapter concludes with references, notes, and a country-by-country list of key legislation
