In Argentina, about 15% of all births are to adolescents, with rates approaching 25% of births in some areas(1). The provinces with the highest rates of adolescent birth also have the largest proportions of families with unsatisfied basic needs and mothers who have not completed primary school(2), indicating that early childbearing primarily afflicts adolescents living in situations of extreme precarity. In these regions, quality information about sexual and reproductive health is hard to find.
