PARAGUAY: Prevention Campaign Warns about Risks of Pregnancy in Adolescence

ADITAL reported on 5 October that on the International Day for the Prevention of Teen Pregnancy, 26 September, the Coalition for the Rights of Children and Adolescents (CDIA) launched the "Na Ñe'eke - We need to talk" to warn of the risk of death faced by Paraguayan teenagers 15 to 19 years during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. The CDIA expressed that a report from UNFPA, United Nations Population Fund, in official data for 2008, indicate that poor teenage pregnancy tends to lead to a cycle of poverty since most drop out of school and only have access to low-paying jobs.
