Why does preventing adolescent pregnancy matter?

Adolescent pregnancy is a global public health and human rights concern. Each year in low- and middle-income countries, more than 7 million girls ages 18 or younger give birth; 2 million of these young mothers are under age 15. Childbearing is one of the leading causes of death among adolescent girls and can result in lasting physical, social, and economic harm to both the young mothers and their children.
