Innovation Description

One in five adolescent girls in the Dominican Republic (DR) are or have been pregnant by the time they turn 20 years old (ENDESA). Adolescent pregnancy increases physical and mental health risks for women, and is a major contributor to poverty (WHO). Children of adolescent mothers are also more likely to experience serious health problems at birth. Prevention of adolescent pregnancy is currently a key maternal and child health (MCH) priority of the Dominican Ministry of Health.
