Innovation Description

In Tanzania, almost one in four (23%) girls between the ages of 15 and 19 has either given birth or is pregnant. The unmet need for family planning is particularly high among teenagers. As a result, many teenage pregnancies are unplanned and unintended. Teenagers and young women often do not seek contraception through community clinics (where it is free of charge) due to fear of stigma (presumed promiscuity), lack of confidentiality, lack of knowledge of contraception, and, lack of empowerment.
