Grossesses précoces et non désirées : recommandations à l'usage du secteur de l'éducation
Embarazo precoz y no planificado y el sector de la educación. Revisión de la evidencia y recomendaciones

Available evidence supports a clear and compelling role for the education sector in preventing early and unintended pregnancy and ensuring the right to education for pregnant and parenting girls. Early and unintended pregnancy can be prevented through good quality comprehensive sexuality education that includes content on gender equality, and linkages with services ensuring the availability of contraceptives. When a girl becomes pregnant, re-entry and school resuming policies need to be put in place and should be well implemented to allow pregnant and parenting girls to fulfill their right to education.
