This study looks at the drivers of unintended pregnancy, HIV and violence among adolescents in Homa Bay County, Kenya. The study also looks at the economic, social, legal and associated challenges faced by adolescent girls around unintended pregnancies and HIV.
Adolescent and young mothers are a priority population for UNICEF in Eastern and Southern Africa, including those who are affected by HIV.
Despite a successful ten year strategy to reduce teenage pregnancies implemented by the Labour Government between 1999 and 2010, the UK still has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in Western Europe (only Greece had a higher rate in 2017) (Office for National Statistics, 2017).

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked unprecedented havoc on children, families and communities around the globe, disrupting vital services and putting millions of lives at risk. Since March, attempts to avert the global health crisis have seen nationwide school closures in 194 countries.
