Sweden has the highest abortion rate in Europe, with the exception of some Eastern European countries, why?
Do we have information? Background for differences?? Available data about sexual and reproductive health (SRH) of adolescents and children in the various Nordic countries: abortion and delivery rates, STI, contraceptive use, sexual behavior, sexual abuse, other health aspects, gender equality, happiness and quality of life? ? Present ways SRH services of adolescents are provided Education of professionals in relation to SRH of adolescents and children
SEXUAL HEALTH FOR ADOLESCENTS 1.Recognizing sexual rights 2.Sexuality education and counselling 3.Confidential high quality services
Finland 60 years ago There was poor country, suffering the consequences of war STIs were common Contraception hardly existing, Women dying of illegal abortion
Changing attitudes During the 1960s a new culture revolved, with freedom for teenagers including sexual behavior Adolescent childbirths peaked in the late 1960s in northern and western Europe With liberalization of legislation, increasing numbers opted for abortion in the 70s In some countries, adolescent premarital sex was mainly approached from a moral point of view; the Scandinavian countries were primarily concerned with health consequences
Changing attitudes The Scandinavian approach was to create preconditions for safer sex: increase sexuality education, availability of contraceptive methods, and accessibility to sexual health services Balance between prevention of pregnancies, prevention of STIs, allowing for sexuality as a positive resource rather than a threat
Background for changes The Nordic experience shows, that with persistent and committed actions many problems can be prevented and solved. Requires political commitment
Sexual/reproductive health Today sexual health is relatively good in the Nordic countries according to available indicators: Maternal and perinatal mortality is very low Incidence of abortions rather low Incidence of HIV very low Teenage pregnancy rare Gender equality good
Legislation in Finland The abortion law 1970, contraceptive counseling obligatory The Public Health Law (1972) guarantied free primary health care including contraceptive services for the whole population Sexuality education was integrated into school programs in 1970 to ensure practice of safer sex.
Responsibility of municipalities in Finland Contraceptive counseling units were founded throughout the country. Public health nurses & midwifes well trained School health developed, school health nurses participated in sexuality education Close connection between education and services

Sex and HIV Education Programs: Their Impact on Sexual Behaviors of Young People Throughout the World Douglas B. Kirby, B.A. Laris, Lori A. Rolleri Journal of Adolescent Health 2007, 40: 206–217 reviewed 83 studies that measured the impact of curriculum- based sexuality education programs on sexual behavior and mediating factors < 25 years anywhere in the world.
Sexuality education works ! Two thirds of the programs significantly improved one or more sexual behaviors. The evidence is strong that programs do not hasten or increase sexual behavior but, instead, some programs delay or decrease sexual behaviors or increase condom or contraceptive use. Programs were effective across a wide variety of countries, cultures, and groups of youth. Replications of studies also indicate that programs remain effective when implemented by others in different communities, provided all the activities are implemented as intended in similar settings.
Impact on contraceptive use Condom use Of the 54 studies measuring program impact on condom use, almost half (48%) showed increased condom use; none found decreased condom use.
Sexual abstinence only programmes to prevent HIV infection in high income countries: systemic review Underhill et al BMJ trials enrolling US youths identified, all outcomes were self reported No program affected incidence of unprotected sex, number of partners, condom use, or sexual initiation

Sexuality education as part of health teaching Sexual health: human relations, sexuality, behavior, values and norms The student should learn basics of sexual health, the importance of contraception and methods for it, and be able to consider and justify responsible sexual behavior The student should be able to name, recognize and reveal different feelings, and describe their development and reasons, and provide examples how behavior and interactions can be regulated according to the situation Ministry of education, guidelines for teaching 2004, but my translation
Aim and structure of the sexual health knowledge study Produce a representative picture of sexuality education of school grade 7-9 in 2006, and the changes from 1996, particularly related to the introduction of a new subject, health, as described by teachers Evaluate the sexual health knowledge of 8 grade students by a national quiz, and changes between 2000 and 2006 Combine the information provided by the teachers with knowledge of the students in the same schools, to evaluate the impact of sexuality education Väestöliitto 2007

Sexual health services Services for adolescents can be provided in various settings. The clinic should have a youth-friendly atmosphere, where young people can feel welcome and comfortable. Unquestionable confidentiality is important. The providers must not moralize and judge the adolescents, but treat adolescents with respect indicating that young people are important.
Services for adolescents contraception, STI treatment, counseling and testing for HIV pregnancy care and post abortion management; management of sexual violence; mental health services, including services to address the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs; information and counseling on development during adolescence, including nutrition, hygiene, sexuality The appropriate range of essential services must be decided based on local needs assessments.

Conclusions When adolescent sexuality is not condemned but sexuality education and sexual health services are provided, it is possible to profoundly improve adolescent sexual health with comparatively small costs. But each year new groups of young people mature, requiring new efforts. Education, counseling and services are all needed. If the resources are cut too much or not given, negative effects are soon evident. Political commitment and resources provided are reflected in results obtained Political commitment and resources provided are reflected in results obtained
