The teenage pregnancy and motherhood rate in Kenya stands at 18%. This implies that about 1 in every 5 teenage girls between the ages of 15-19 years, have either had a live birth or are pregnant with their first child.
Development of this policy analysis report was meant to review the policy framework and implementation related to Adolescent and Youth Sexual Reproductive Health (AYSRH) in Kenya.
In collaboration with line ministries and partners, NCPD held a national dialogue on 4th March 2020 to discuss adolescent health and development with a focus on teenage pregnancy.
The Adolescent Reproductive Health and Development (ARHD) Policy is a foundation for initiatives in Kenya that integrate reproductive health and development concerns for adolescents and youth into the national development process, and enhance their participation in that process.
