Abstract
The vast majority of Swiss adolescents see a physician at least once a year. However, a sizeable proportion of them indicate that they don't have the opportunity to address their own concerns and problems. While female adolescents have access to health care in the field of sexual and reproductive health through family planning clinics, this is not the case of adolescent males. The "clinic for boys only" is an open space for adolescent males where they can bring questions and health problems related to their body, their growth and their puberty, just as their difficulties and their fears regarding their normality, their sexuality, their feelings, sexual dysfunctions and questions related to violence within the couple. They can also get information/treatment in the area of sexually transmitted infections.
