Abstract [en]

Children and youth are one of the most important main target groups in terms of public health work because of the habits that are established at an early age often affect the rest of their lives. Habits regarding sexual health may, with lack of knowledge, provide both physical and mental health consequences for the individual, but also for future public health in general. In Sweden, the number of chlamydia cases since 1995 has been tripled among young people, with a behavior change regarding sexuality as a possible cause. The purpose of this study is to describe how young people perceive information about sexual health and where they choose to seek information, to clarify the need of information for young people. A quantitative web-based survey was conducted on high school students (n = 98) and as a complement, a qualitative study in the form of interviews (n = 5) as well. The results showed that young people are looking for safe and informative sources for information regarding sexual health. The source that reaches most of all young people, i.e. school, was not experienced as sufficient by the young people that it should, for them to not be exposed to risks that could affect their sexual health. The conclusion reveals that youths need to be offered guidance in their search for information, which good knowledge of the subject and in various educational methods, could contribute with, and at the same time offer the youth safe and secure sources based on the needs of the individual's.

Abstract [sv]

Barn och unga tillhör de viktigaste målgrupperna när det gäller folkhälsoarbete eftersom de vanor som grundläggs i tidig ålder ofta påverkar individen resten av livet. Vanor när det gäller den sexuella hälsan, kan i brist på kunskap ge såväl fysiska som psykiska hälsokonsekvenser livet ut för individen, men även påverka folkhälsan generellt framöver. I Sverige har t.ex. antalet klamydiafall sedan 1995 tredubblats bland unga, med beteendeförändringar kring sexualitet som en trolig orsak. Syftet med denna studie är dels att beskriva hur ungdomar upplever information om sexuell hälsa, dels var de väljer att söka informationen, men också att tydliggöra ungdomars behov av informationsmöjligheter. En kvantitativ webbaserad enkätstudie genomfördes bland gymnasieungdomar (n=98) och som ett komplement till den genomfördes även en kvalitativ studie i form av individuella intervjuer (n=5). Resultatet visade att ungdomar söker trygga och informativa källor när det gäller information om sexuell hälsa. Den källan som når merparten av alla ungdomar, d.v.s. skolan, upplevs inte som tillräcklig av ungdomarna för att de inte ska utsättas för risker som påverkar deras sexuella hälsa. Slutsatsen blir att ungdomar behöver bli erbjudna vägledning i sitt sökande efter information, vilket god kunskap i ämnet och i olika pedagogiska metoder skulle kunna bidra med, och samtidigt erbjuda dem trygga och säkra källor utifrån individens behov
