The Committee on Adolescence addresses the special health care needs of adolescents and promotes the pediatrician as their optimal source of health care. The Committee monitors and makes policy recommendations to the Board of Directors on issues surrounding vital adolescent health issues, including reproductive and sexual health care; identification and prevention of Chlamydia and other STIs; improving health care delivery in the juvenile correctional care system, and the provision of confidential health care services. The committee works closely with the Section on Adolescent Health (SOAH) to bring policy and education together.
