Abstract
La prise en charge médicale du mineur non accompagné est complexe et nécessite la mise en place d'un réseau biopsychosocial. A Lausanne, l'Unité multidisciplinaire de santé des adolescents (UMSA) joue un rôle préventif et curatif pour cette population extrêmement vulnérable. Une prise en charge psychologique rapide est souvent nécessaire en raison des événements de vie dramatiques auxquels la plupart de ces adolescents ont été confrontés. L'absence de projet d'avenir pour la majorité de ces adolescents reste une entrave majeure à leur développement et à leur santé mentale et physique.
Medical treatment of an unaccompanied minor is made more complicated firstly by its connections with the politics of immigration and secondly by the difficulty in gaining recognition of the priority of the minor's interests. Enabling healthcare teams to travel and meet these particularly vulnerable youths makes medical care more accessible to them and facilitates an optimal bio-psycho-social treatment. For most of these adolescents it is their lack of plans for the future which remains the major obstacle to their development and mental and physical health.
