[Costs of a primary health care program for the management of high blood pressure in Colombia].
CONCLUSIONS : The expenditure on human talent is more than 50% of the resources allocated for the management of high blood pressure, but this has positive repercussions on the control and management of this condition. High blood pressure figures show controlled management of the patients included in the program: 61% of them had normal figures and 53% were classified in the normal stages. High blood pressure requires a large amount of resources, so it should be studied by multidisciplinary health teams in order to find more efficient management alternatives.

CONCLUSIONS : This study highlights the importance of parental involvement in the education of children to delay the onset of sexual activity as a healthy practice during adolescence.

Co-educated teens engage in this activity earlier, although their mothers tend to supervise them more. Family and school are important contexts for fostering healthy life styles in teenagers.
