Youth Health Survey

Department of Public Health Aruba - Epidemiology and Research Unit

 

2013

English

Description:

As acknowledged by the World Health Organization (WHO) adolescents (between 10 and 19 years) are often thought of as a healthy group. However, many adolescents do die prematurely due to accidents, suicide, violence, pregnancy related complications and other illnesses that are either preventable or treatable. Numerous more suffer of chronic ill-health and disability. Additionally, many serious diseases in adulthood have their roots in adolescence. Moreover, tobacco use, sexually transmitted infections including HIV, poor eating and limited exercise habits, lead to illness or premature death later in life (WHO, 2013).

 

In Aruba, the prevalence of risk factors among adolescents influencing their health is unknown; this due to the fact that indicators about the adolescent’s personal, perceived and social environment are scattered over the different stakeholders who work closely with them. With this survey a description of the prevalence of the different risk and protective factors together with the adolescent’s own perception of their environment shall be presented.

Curative care for teenage mothers in Aruba
Increasing the effectiveness of curative care

White Yellow Cross

 

2020

28

Dutch

Description:

The White Yellow Cross Teen Mothers Department provides curative care to teenage mothers in Aruba. The teenage mother problem is huge and is a social problem. Teenage mothers often leave school early, have a less favorable financial status and less advantageous future prospects than peers without children (Diez & Mistry, 2010).

The White Yellow Cross is committed to them, but encounters various problems when providing curative care. This is unfavorable for both the care provider and the client.

 

The aim of this study is therefore to identify ways in which the effectiveness of curative care can be increased.

The research question of this study is as follows: 'How can the White Yellow Cross Aruba Department of Teenage Mothers increase the effectiveness of curative care for teenage mothers?'.
