Sexually transmitted infections are a major health risk to all sexually active adolescents and improving clinical management for this age group is of major importance. Currently, adolescents are managed in the same way as adults. This paper summarizes recommendations by the World Health Organization that services be more responsive to adolescent concerns about confidentiality, risk assessment be more attuned to their sexual behavioral patterns, and services be tailored to give more time for counseling, assessment of stage of maturity and continuity of reproductive health care.
