Tanzania faces high rates of teenage pregnancy. According to the UNFPA, one of four girls aged 15-19 is pregnant or has given birth already. In Tanzania, if you’re in school and you become pregnant, it could mean the end of your education. This is a result of dated and overly harsh laws that prevent teenage mothers from continuing their education. Drivers of teenage pregnancy include poverty, gender inequality and social norms, low levels of education, and the lack of comprehensive reproductive health education. This is why Amref Health Africa empowers youth, especially girls, with education about reproductive health and rights so they can make informed choices that lead to safer sex practices.
